Penny Lane is an American documentary filmmaker based in New York. Her work typically deals with women's issues, modern technology, and history -- either her own autobiographical history or the history of controversial figures, or sometimes both.
In 2010, she formed the documentary production company Dipper Films with her husband, Bryan L. Frye, a filmmaker and law professor. While for her solo career Lane has only made short documentaries, Dipper Films is focused on making feature-length non-fiction productions.
Lane received an MFA at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and a BA at Vassar College. In 2010-2011, she was the programmer for the Flaherty NYC documentary screening series at the Anthology Film Archives.
