Liz Nord is a documentary filmmaker who has produced and shown work in Europe, the Middle East and throughout North America. In 2009, she shot a short documentary on-location in Haiti for musician Wyclef Jean’s charitable organization, Yele Haiti. In 2008, she ran MTV's Street Team '08—an Emmy Award-winning project wherein 51 state-based citizen journalists covered the 2008 presidential elections from a youth perspective, across all media platforms: web, mobile, broadcast and virtual. This effort contributed to the most influential youth vote in U.S. history.
In 2006, she toured the world with her critically acclaimed film about rebellious young Israelis, “Jericho’s Echo: Punk Rock in the Holy Land.” When she’s not gallivanting around the globe with film projects, she is a media educator, lecturer, and columnist. Liz moved to New York from the San Francisco Bay Area, where she ran an organization teaching filmmaking skills and media literacy to underserved youth. She also served on the Board of Directors of the Bay Area Women in Film and TV.
