Fiscal Sponsee – Compost Media
Scott Kirschenbaum runs COMPOST MEDIA, a Washington-based production company creating content at the intersection of body, mind, movement and land. He is in pre-production on a feature documentary about embodied environmentalism and a short film about zero gravity dance. His last two films were the Alzheimer’s documentary “You’re Looking At Me Like I Live Here And I Don’t,” which aired on PBS’ Emmy award-winning program Independent Lens, and serves as a teaching tool for nonprofits, universities, libraries and conferences around the world; and the birth documentary “These Are My Hours,” which has been distributed in 45 countries worldwide, No Film School called “the most cinematic birth documentary ever,” and musician Ani DiFranco described as “…a film that speaks clearly and poetically to a fundamental truth that is all but absent in our national discourse: The power of birth must be back in the hands of the women who give birth.” Kirschenbaum previously directed the speaker series “A Soapbox in Haiti,” which was featured on ABC World News, premiered on Haitian television stations on the one-year anniversary of the earthquake, and is taught in Haitian studies programs in the United States, Canada and Europe. He was recently artist-in-residence at Sou’wester Lodge, and will serve as artist-in-residence at Lookout Arts Quarry in December 2019. A graduate of Yale University and alumni of the San Francisco Film Society FilmHouse Residency, Kirschenbaum lives in Bow, Washington.
