Delores M. Flynn, a graduate of Northwestern University, worked for 11 years as a journalist at the South Bend Tribune and The Detroit News, where she spent the bulk of her career covering education, city government, courts, and entertainment news.

It was the latter assignments that resonated the most with the Chicago native who has always been a storyteller at heart. At a young age she crafted stories with her grandmother, and in graduate school she pursued her love of cinema by learning the art of screenwriting.

After putting her writing aspirations on hold to raise a family, Flynn is making her mark in the film industry as a writer/director/producer. Her short films “The Color of Hate” (an interracial love story set hours before the 1967 Detroit riot), and “mama” (a tale about woman suffering from postpartum depression who leaves her family - currently streaming on Tubi), have been selected in multiple film festivals and earned 24 awards to date. She shot one of her latest shorts – “Why Me!?” about domestic violence awareness in 2021 and it premiered last year with support from HAVEN. Flynn directed two feature films in June 2022 (Cut Throat streaming on Tubi) and October 2022 (The Easy Path which is awaiting distribution).

Flynn works on commercials and independent film sets throughout Metro Detroit. Her credits include - Pepsi Full of Detroit Soul, Impact with Gal Gadot: a six-part National Geographic documentary series, Black Mafia Family and Stealing Jokes.
