David Felix Sutcliffe is an independent documentary filmmaker and a youth media educator. In July 2013, he was selected for Filmmaker Magazine's "25 New Faces of Independent Film." His work as a filmmaker has been supported by artist grants from the BBC, the National Endowment for the Arts, Chicken and Egg Pictures, the Tribeca Film Institute, and the Independent Television Service. His first film, ADAMA, was broadcast on PBS World in November 2011, and featured the story of a 16-year-old Muslim girl growing up in Harlem who was arrested by the FBI on suspicion of being a "potential suicide bomber." His second film, (T)ERROR (working title), is the first film to document an active FBI counterterrorism sting operation, featuring unprecedented, real-time access to the investigation’s central players. (T)ERROR was the recipient of the 2013 Garrett Scott Documentary Development Grant, awarded by the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival. Along with the film’s co-director Lyric R. Cabral, Sutcliffe was honored by the Tribeca Film Institute with the 2013 Creative Promise Award. He has worked as a cinematographer on films in Paris, Indonesia, Kenya and Kansas, and has taught documentary film for the Harlem Children's Zone, the Tribeca Film Insitute, and the Brooklyn Arts Council since 2003.
