Jeanelle Augustin is Doc Society's new Film Officer, serving as first point of contact for artists from development forward. Before Doc Society, Jeanelle worked in the Documentary Film Program and New Frontier Lab Programs at Sundance Institute, as well as contemporary art museums and nonprofits from Haiti to Hawai'i. Born in New York City, she is interested in the visual and sonic culture of the future - what does creative freedom for artists look and sound like? She is excited about the emergent strategies and creative solutions that artists offer to reimagine reality and build a more equitable future. Outside of Doc Society, she also serves as Film Programmer at True/False Film Fest, Camden International Film Festival and teaches yoga.
