Guest Teaching / Workshops

Judith has taught at University of Wisconsin (Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies), NYU’s Department of Undergraduate Film and Television and the New School University. She presents on a range of topics including introductory and advanced documentary production and storytelling, environmental issue filmmaking, innovative audience engagement and public relations strategies, “How to maximize a film festival screening,” and the art of personal documentary narrative.

“Judith poured her passion and guts into the theaters, inviting— no, politically organizing— the audience to join in a collective struggle to understand our personal stakes in the environment. She’s a galvanizing presence. She ignited students in smaller master classes with her intelligence, experience, and deep grasp of the relationships between politically charged documentary and filmmaker’s responsibilities to a world beyond themselves.”
