Jeremy S. Levine is an award-winning filmmaker and educator based in Brooklyn, NY. His films explore race, trauma, and disillusionment and seek to unearth buried tragedies and work towards the often-elusive goal of reconciliation. He has lectured on film production, directing, ethics, and theory at universities around the country including Hunter College, American University, and the University of Washington.
An Emmy award-winning filmmaker and two-time Sundance Institute fellow, his work has screened at hundreds of film festivals around the world including the Berlinale, Tribeca, and IDFA, streamed on Netflix, Amazon Prime, Sundance Now, and Hulu, broadcast nationally in six countries, and been recognized with awards for craft, storytelling, and a commitment to social justice.
Levine’s first directorial debut For Ahkeem, played as an official selection of over 60 film festivals—including the Berlinale, Tribeca, and Hot Docs—where it won 10 awards, including 7 “Best Documentary Awards.” The film chronicles Daje Shelton, a Black teenage girl, as she fights to make a better life for herself and her son in North St. Louis. During its limited theatrical run, For Ahkeem was named in the Top 10 Lists by both Entertainment Weekly and People and was included on the “Unforgettables” List by the Cinema Eye Honors, a list that IndieWire writes “helped to define documentary cinema in 2017.”
In 2010, Levine produced and edited Good Fortune, a feature documentary about how efforts to aid Africa may be undermining the very communities they aim to serve. AFI Silverdocs honored the film with the Witness Award for Human Rights at its 2009 festival premiere and the Overseas Press Club recognized Good Fortune with the 2010 Carl Spielvogel Award for international reporting. Good Fortune was broadcast on the award-winning PBS series, POV, where it won a 2010 News & Documentary Emmy.
Previously, Levine produced for National Geographic and PBS NewsHour and worked as an editor on Everything’s Cool, a feature documentary about global warming that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.
Levine has also directed short films, including Am I Next, a documentary about a teenager navigating the protests on the streets of Ferguson. The short was featured on Time Magazine, Upworthy and Dazed Magazine and selected as a Vimeo Staff pick, with over 500K combined views.
Levine received a degree in Documentary Production from the Park School of Communications at Ithaca College, where his work was nominated for a Student Academy Award. As an undergraduate, he directed, produced, and edited Walking the Line, a feature documentary about vigilantes along the U.S.-Mexico border that screened at dozens of festivals around the world.
In 2008, Levine co-founded the Brooklyn Filmmakers Collective (BFC), a community of professional filmmakers dedicated to collaboration and mutual support. Collectively, the group has produced work that has screened at Sundance, SXSW, Tribeca, Slamdance, A&E, PBS, IFC, and HBO.

I have a BA in Writing and Producing for television from Columbia College Chicago
I studied Meisner Technique in NYC for 2 years after high school, I then went on to Chicago where I got back to my first love, comedy. I became very involved with the improv and sketch scene which led me to go back to college where I studied TV writing and from there I developed and wrote my own TV pilots as well as spec scripts.
Currently I'm learning more about the technical side of production such as video lighting, editing and sound so I can make my own projects look more professional, as sometime bad sound ect can take a viewer out of an otherwise funny idea or script.
Fun fact: I'm also a trained makeup artist and aesthetician (bikini wax anyone?)
I'm on that hustle like everyone else!
