Sarah Berkovich received her undergraduate degree in Documentary Film Production at Emerson College in 2010. At Emerson, she helped found and lead a student media organization called Captured Emotion that facilitated member generated documentary productions. While in Boston, she also worked at MIT as a videographer for the Nextlab Initiative, and as a production assistant on an American Experience episode entitled “God in America”. Interested in gaining more experience in distribution and exhibition, Sarah spent a summer interning at the International Documentary Association, where she helped coordinate Docuweeks, an Oscar-qualifying theatrical showcase. Her most recent project is a short documentary entitled 10,000 Trees, about her 85 year old grandfather who reforested a plot of land in Lyle, Washington by hand. Sarah is passionate about documenting oral history, and one day hopes to teach documentary filmmaking in addition to being a producer.
