In 1985 Quartullo co-directed with Stefano Reali Exit, which was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Live Action Short Film. He made his feature film directorial debut in 1992, with the comedy film Quando eravamo repressi, and from then he directed a number of comedy-dramas, inspired to golden age Commedia all'italiana.
