Beyond excited to have Award-winning 🏆 filmmaker Jacqueline Olive visiting the DFP this week to meet with 2nd and 3rd-year students to discuss their thesis films.
Last night she joined faculty for a dinner (Swipe right on photo). Tomorrow, she will also share her grant and outreach experience in Professor Gilbert's Entrepreneurship class.
Jackie is an independent filmmaker and immersive media producer with fifteen years of experience in journalism and film. 🎥 She is also a former DFP student.
Her debut feature documentary, @AlwaysInSeasonFilm, premiered in competition at the 2019 @SundanceOrg Film Festival and was awarded the Special Jury Prize for Moral Urgency. The film screened in numerous film festivals including @HotDocs_ and @AmericanFilmInstitute Docs and will make its broadcast premiere on PBS's @IndependentLens on February 24.
Previously, Jacqueline worked on the production team of the Emmy Award-winning @PBS documentary series, Independent Lens, and the internationally-themed PBS WORLD series, Global Voices, for three seasons. Jackie has received artist grants and industry funding from Sundance Institute, Independent Television Service, @FordFoundation, @Firelight_Media, and more. She was recently awarded the Emerging Filmmakers of Color Award from the @IDAorg and the Jonathan Logan Family Foundation.
Looking forward to spending time with her over the next 2 days. #WFUdocfilm
