Georgia Gruzen

Georgia Gruzen was born in New York City and graduated from Cornell University with a B.A. in Film Studies and English Literature. Before attending SVA film school she worked in film production, the travel business, journalism, and finance, developing an expertise in editing salacious blog posts, making people money and getting rid of vermin. She is glad to be making films now. Georgia has done production work and internships with Women Make Movies, Time Warner Cable, Ark Media, IKM Productions and Break Thru Films. She was a 2005 awardee of the Film/Video Arts Artist Mentor Project for Emerging Filmmakers. Georgia’s own short films have included “Perfection”, about a young man with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder; “A Whole Place”, about Lower Manhattan residents after 9/11; and “Printer’s Block” about a Master Printmaker who uses historic presses. She admires the work of Kim Longinotto, Barbara Koppel, and Jane Campion, among others.
