A serial award-winning Filmmaker for Change, Holly Mosher brings socially conscious films to the public. In high school she developed a passion for both photography and philosophy that led her to pursue filmmaking. In her college entrance paper, she cited George Orwell’s idea that all art should be political, and today, uses that concept to guide her work.
After graduating with honors from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, Holly produced a number of commercials and feature films.
In 2004 she made her directorial debut with her award-winning documentary, Hummingbird, about two non-profits in Brazil that work with street kids and women suffering domestic violence. Afterwards, she produced two films on the pharmaceutical industry: Side Effects, starring Katherine Heigl, and Money Talks: Profits Before Patient Safety. She co-produced Maybe Baby, and executive produced Vanishing of the Bees, FREE FOR ALL!, and Pay 2 Play: Democracy’s High Stakes. The second film she directed, Bonsai People – The Vision of Muhammad Yunus, aired on American Public Television. The Hollywood Reporter named her one of the top up-and-coming independent film producers. Learn more at HollyMosher.com
