Greg Irwin: Narrative Documentary Programmer
SEEfest Staff Writer | March 23, 2015, 8:35 AM
Gregory Irwin is a screenwriter and documentarian currently working with USC Shoah Foundation, an academic institute founded by Steven Spieberg, to assemble and distribute an archive of over 53,000 audiovisual testimonies of survivors and witnesses of the Holocaust and other genocides.
In addition to his filmmaking pursuits, he presently focuses on coordinating an overhaul of the Institute’s annual Student Voices Film Contest, and constructing videos for its various educational and research endeavors.
Programming SEEfest’s narrative documentary category has been an absolute treat for him: so many fascinating, relatable human stories and so many new discoveries about the rich beauty and culture of southeast Europe. He’s thrilled to share this year’s documentary slate with festival attendees, and to get to experience these films alongside audiences who’ve never seen them before.
