Jen Bradwell

Jen Bradwell is primarily a documentary film editor with over a dozen documentaries to her credit — most recently Jennifer Siebel Newsom’s FAIR PLAY for Hello Sunshine. Additional editing credits include the Emmy Award-winning TIME FOR ILHAN, Sundance premiere Resilience, HBO’s TOXIC HOT SEAT and THE BIG PICTURE: RETHINKING DYSLEXIA, and the SXSW Audience Award-winning MINE: TAKEN BY KATRINA. Jen has taught editing master classes at UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism and UC Santa Cruz’s Social Documentation program. Among the four films she cut for James Redford, two seminal projects on childhood trauma (RESILIENCE and PAPER TIGERS) have had more than 50,000 community screenings around the country and have helped spark a national conversation around what it means to be trauma-informed. She lives in Berkeley with her husband – prolific film composer Todd Boekelheide – and their two children. Years of creative post-production work have inspired them to direct their first film together.
