Cutter Hodierne began his career at age 22 as U2’s ‘filmmaker on the road’ during their U2-360 tour. After this, he traveled to East Africa to research piracy and direct the short film Fishing Without Nets. The short won numerous awards including the Grand Jury Prize in Short Filmmaking at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. Cutter was named one of the top 25 New Faces of Independent Film by Filmmaker Magazine. Cutter then teamed up with VICE to expand the short into his feature debut. The feature length version of Fishing Without Nets was supported at the Sundance Screenwriters Lab and received a grant from Cinereach / Sundance Institute, and in 2014, the feature premiered in competition at Sundance where Cutter received the U.S. Dramatic Directing Award. In October Fishing Without Nets was released to critical acclaim by VICE Films & 20th Century Fox.
