Kevin Smith speaking at VidCon 2012.

Kevin Smith is an American screenwriter, actor, film producer, and director. The following is a filmography chronicling his work.

Smith came to prominence with the low-budget comedy Clerks (1994), in which he appeared as the character Silent Bob. His first several films were mostly set in his home state of New Jersey; and, while not strictly sequential, they frequently feature crossover plot elements, character references, and a shared canon described by fans as the "View Askewniverse"—named after his production company View Askew Productions, which he co-founded with Scott Mosier.[1]

Smith also directed and produced films such as the buddy cop action comedy Cop Out, as well as the horror film Red State. Outside of film, Smith has worked in various capacities on several television series.

Smith also participates in Q&A sessions that have routinely been filmed for DVD release, beginning with An Evening with Kevin Smith.
