Co-ordinator, Fiscal Sponsorship and Documentary Programs
I have been a journalist for 15 years working in different desks mainly including society, arts, and culture. Having started as a reporter, I am now the senior editor at one of the most prestigious magazines on culture and society, namely Aftab Network magazine, in Iran. In recent years and due to ever-increasing limits on press freedom, I began to feel that I can reflect society’s voice through another medium, that is documentary cinema. I started working for a couple of projects as a researcher and screenwriter, and soon became the senior editor of the multimedia desk at IRNA (Islamic Republic News Agency). We produced daily pieces of news in video format. With that experience, me and my wife, also an experienced journalist, decided to make our own documentary to tell a story about Afghan refugees living in Iran. The film is at its final stages of shooting and editing.
Student who likes horror films a little bit too much.

I am an emerging documentary film maker. My interest is immigration. My first documentary, The Second Cooler, explored root causes and larger issues surrounding immigration since the implementation of NAFTA in 1994. I am in the process of putting together proposals for an upcoming immigration documentary, entitled Shithole Country. I am interested in peoples affected by immigration and related policies. If I had unlimited resources, I'd do a big budget documentary about Honduras's Berta Cáceres and her legitimate complaints about then Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. I'd do documentaries also about people who have passed under the immigration and reporting radar, e.g. mostly white women married to undocumented men who live in fear of ICE.

As an aspiring filmmaker, exploring people’s stories, relationships,
conversations, and beauty fascinates me. Every
individual has a story within and I want to be the one to
make those stories come to life.
In addition to producing stories, I strive to create
experiences viewers will relate to through their emotions;
whether it be joy, sadness, fear, anger, or motivation.
With each video, the process becomes an exploration of
not only new techniques, but of myself, others, and the
story being told.

Hi my name is Precious King and one of my goals is to continue to create roles for young girls and women. I'm a writer, director who believes that by having more women behind the camera, and in the writers room, it will allow for more leading roles to be created with substance for our talented women and young stars in the making.
Roles created, written and directed by women for women is the future of Cinema and a huge door opener for more to follow.
