Short Bio

Robert C. Winn is an independent producer and director of documentaries living in Brooklyn, New York. He also consults for foundations on immigration and education policy.

Robert’s projects put a human face on pressing social justice issues by foregrounding the voices of the people most affected. Working closely with stakeholders, he creates compelling, high impact media to raise public awareness, inform policy debates, educate communities and train service providers. Clients include the New York City Administration for Children’s Services, The California Endowment, the Annie E. Casey Foundation, and the DC Language Access Coalition.

Recent public television feature projects as producer/director include Grassroots Rising (2005) about labor issues and the Asian Pacific Islander community in Los Angeles, Saigon, USA (2003) about the development of the Vietnamese American community 25 years after the fall of Saigon; and Childhood in Translation (work in progress) about immigrant children who are the linguistic and cultural brokers for their families. His projects have been supported by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Annie E. Casey Foundation, The California Endowment, the California Council for the Humanities, the National Asian American Telecommunications Association, the Independent Television Service and the Fleischhacker Foundation. He has also served on grant review panels for ITVS, the Center for Asian American Media, and Visual Communications. He is a recipient of the Kaiser Family Foundation Media Fellowship to develop projects around health issues. He is also on the board of directors of the Global Action Project, a social justice-oriented youth media organization based in New York.

Thanks Robert! Good to reconnect with you too - next time I'm in NY, I'll let you know. (I'm still based in the SF area.)

I'm wrong - Alberta is on the site, just didn't show up in my alphabetical search because for some reason this site alphabetizes lower case names after upper case. Hmm.
