Gina Abatemarco

Gina Abatemarco has a passion for art, anthropology, and evocative cinema both in documentary and fiction filmmaking. For five years she has worked passionately on Kivalina People. Despite the harsh conditions of her work Gina seeks beauty, intimacy, and hope in every frame. Her work in the Arctic has been supported by Native American Public Television, NYU’s The Richard Vague/Chris Columbus Award, the Berlinale’s Berlin Today Award, Tribeca All Access, IFP's Spotlight on Documentaries, and will make its feature premier in Fall of 2013. When not working on film-related projects, Gina is active in the local food movement, inspired by her time learning to subsist off of the land in Kivalina. She received a BFA in Filmmaking from Tisch School of the Arts’ Film & TV Program, where she co-founded The Fusion Film Festival, a festival celebrating the work of female filmmakers now celebrating its 10th year at New York University.
