The Neighbors' Window is a 2019 American short film written and directed by Marshall Curry.[1] It won the Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film, in 2020. The film was inspired by a true story by Diane Weipert, which she recounted on the podcast Love and Radio, produced by Briana Breen and Brendan Baker.


The short film tells the story of Alli (Maria Dizzia), a mother of young children who has grown frustrated with her daily routine and husband (Greg Keller). But her life is shaken up when two free-spirited twenty-somethings move in across the street and she discovers that she can see into their apartment.

Inspired by a true story, the film was written and directed by four-time Oscar-nominated documentary filmmaker, Marshall Curry. Starring Tony-nominated Maria Dizzia, Greg Keller, and Juliana Canfield. [2][3][4]
