Nicole Newnham  

Filmmaker and Writer

Nicole Newnham is a filmmaker and writer. Most recently, she produced Lynette Wallworth’s virtual reality film, Collisions, which premiered this January at the World Economic Forum in Davos and was selected for the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. Nicole co-directed the Emmy-nominated documentary The Revolutionary Optimists, which inspired her to develop Map Your World (www.mapyourworld.org). Map Your World is an online community and storytelling platform for young changemakers that enables youth to leverage mobile technology to map data about issues they care about as the centerpiece of a campaign for change in their communities.

Previously, Nicole co-produced and directed the critically acclaimed The Rape of Europa, about the fate of Europe's art treasures during WWII. The Rape of Europa enjoyed a successful theatrical release, has been a much-broadcast PBS primetime special, was nominated for two national Emmys and a WGA award, and was shortlisted for the 2008 Documentary Oscar. Nicole was also nominated for an Emmy for co-producing and directing the documentary Sentenced Home, broadcast on the PBS series Independent Lens, which follows three Cambodian refugees in Seattle who are deported back to Cambodia after 9/11. With Pulitzer-Prize winning photographer Brian Lanker, she co-produced They Drew Fire, a widely acclaimed special for PBS about the combat artists of World War II, and wrote the companion book distributed by Harper Collins.
