Nivedita Das has over 20 years of advocacy, project management and evaluation experience on international development projects. On her travels, she has heard many powerful stories. These encounters, and an itch to help others tell their truths on their own terms, brought her to the wonderful world of filmmaking. Das has produced, shot and edited stop-motion videos, news and cultural shorts for various outlets.
Das holds a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and Global Studies from Wittenberg University, a Master of Arts in Participation, Power and Social Change from the Institute of Development Studies at the University of Sussex, a Multimedia Storytelling Certification from Columbia University School of Journalism and a Graduate Certification in Documentary Filmmaking from the Documentary Center at George Washington University.
Moving forward, Das hopes to prove that anything is possible if you put your mind to it, with a good group of people and a healthy dose of bad ideas.
