|James Cameron: 2012 Lifetime Achievement Award|
Gianna Savoie is an award-winning documentary producer and writer with over a decade of experience in Natural History filmmaking. Her work has been featured worldwide on Discovery, PBS, Animal Planet, National Geographic, and the BBC among others.
Trained as an Environmental Biologist, she pairs her love of science with the art of filmmaking to craft the stories that not only inform, but deeply resonate. Her pursuit of powerful environmental storytelling has led her high over Himalayan peaks, across our mighty oceans, and deep through the Amazon basin to explore the direct connections between humans and the natural world.
In 2010, Gianna wrote and produced the Emmy-nominated film, Wolverine: Chasing the Phantom for the PBS series, NATURE. She is currently writing and story-producing Our Blue Canoe, a cinematic feature documentary about the plight of the Pacific Ocean, due to be released in 2013.
In addition to filmmaking, her stories and articles have appeared in publications around the world. And in her quest to “pay it forward,” Gianna also teaches in the MFA program for Science and Natural History Filmmaking at Montana State University in Bozeman.
