Gabriel Silverman

Director, Co-Founder

Gabe’s first lessons in storytelling came sitting around the dinner table with his grandparents; some who escaped war, others who fought in it. Stories were all they were able to bring with them to America to keep their culture alive.

Gabe began his career at The Washington Post, winning more than a dozen awards for his reporting, including an Edward R. Murrow Award for his investigative work, a White House News Photographers Award for Best Documentary, & two Emmy nominations.

His directorial feature debut, TransMilitary, premiered at SXSW 2018 where it won the Audience Award for Best Documentary and received critical acclaim. He was named to the 10 Filmmakers to Watch list by The Independent.

Gabe is an alum of the Gotham Documentary Lab, Film Independent/CNN Docuseries Lab, and RIAS Fellowship.
