Ann-Caryn Cleveland is focused on creating stories and campaigns that educate and inspire action.
Ms. Cleveland’s wide range of creative work has been distributed by HBO, MTV, PBS, Fine Living Channel, CBC, BBC, Sundance Channel, Sony Pictures, Women Make Movies and awarded honors.
She began her film career in the research rooms of doc directors Alex Gibney and Robert Kenner. She received her MFA from USC’s School of Cinema-Television in 2003 while working full-time for Sony Pictures Digital Entertainment. In addition to helping market blockbuster films at Sony, she helped design and build one of the first social networking sites that bridged the gap between consumers using their own media tools and infusing it with blockbuster film content.
She currently serves as Head of Cinema/Digital Media at Vanguard University and is now working on a new film initiative called “Where We Come From.” The initiative is an online collective of stories about family and race, including her own research about James Meredith, the first African-American to attend the University of Mississippi.
