Jason Goldman has been a resident of New York City for 20 years, having gained first-hand experience in filmmaking working as a producer in broadcast, digital, and mini-doc advertising formats. His earliest work was under the supervision of Albert Maysles where he learned the foundation of direct cinema, applying those tenets to both short and long form documentaries. His career has included worldwide ad campaigns, short documentaries, and feature length original films. In 2018 he produced SIDELINED, the first short documentary financed and distributed by A&E IndieFilms which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. His directorial debut ROWDY GIRL premiered at Hot Docs 2023 and currently has educational distribution with Collective Eye, ultimately aiming for a public broadcast deal. He is a mentor with ReelWorks, a NYC based organization that teaches filmmaking to underserved city youth and is active in the filmmaker collective Filmshop.
