SHUKREE HASSAN TILGHMAN worked as an editor on Dog the Bounty Hunter and various other semi-ridiculous cable reality shows before coming to his senses and pursuing an M.F.A. in Screenwriting at Columbia University. A recipient of the Martin Scorsese Filmmaker’s Scholarship while an undergraduate at New York University, Shukree has directed several short films and written television and feature scripts, a couple of which have placed in competitions such as Bluecat, Austin Film Festival, Anything But Hollywood, and ScriptShark Insider.
In the documentary world, Shukree cut his teeth in the grind of post-production on documentary series for networks including A&E, Discovery, TLC, and MTV before serving as Associate Producer on the Marco Williams directed BANISHED, which premiered at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival.
Shukree is currently writing, producing, and directing the documentary film MORE THAN A MONTH, which follows his semi-tongue-in-cheek cross-country campaign to end Black History Month. Funded by the Independent Television Service (ITVS),the National Black Programming Consortium (NBPC), and the Sundance Documentary Fund, the film will broadcast nationally in 2012 as part of the PBS series Independent Lens.
