Nancy Spielberg


Nancy Spielberg grew up immersed in filmmaking, working on her brother’s early films with cast and crew. She attended Arizona State University and UCLA and after moving to New York in 1978, she studied film at Sarah Lawrence College and the New School. An accomplished businesswoman and philanthropist, she has turned her energy and talents to producing documentary and feature films. One of her priorities is to help preserve stories and make them into educational tools for the benefit of younger generations. Many of Nancy’s films have been shown as a part of the Gershman Philadelphia Jewish Film Festival, including Above and Beyond, GI Jews: Jewish Americans in World War II, Who Will Write Our History, and Picture of His Life.
