Jane Weiner is an award winning documentary filmmaker. In addition to her work as a documentary filmmaker and international co-producer, in 1973, Jane Weiner began teaching with the Center for Understanding Media in New York City in the Artist-in-the-School program under a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Over several years, she worked with elementary and high school teachers to integrate film, video and photography into the curriculum at schools in South Carolina, Connecticut, and the Virgin Islands. She used this same approach teaching with the Communications Experience in intercity schools in Philadelphia in 1974. From 1976-1989, as a member-of-the-faculty at the Graduate Media Studies Program at the New School in New York she taught courses on international television and documentary writing. During 2002-2004, Weiner taught documentary writing, beginning production, and international television at the Newhouse School for Communications at Syracuse University. Over the years, she has also conducted documentary and writing workshops for broadcast professionals and young directors in Europe, North Africa and Asia. Her many production credits include SILVERLAKE LIFE, JUPITER’S WIFE, HOME PAGE, RAVI SHANKAR and MYSERIOUS DISAPPEARANCE OF BEES, which garnered a huge European audience in 2010. Inspired by her mentor, Richard Leacock, her latest film for French TV, LA CAMERA PASSE-PARTOUT celebrates the legacy of the American Cinema vérité tradition.
