Julia has served as Kartemquin’s Marketing and Distribution Associate since the fall of 2016, having interned with Kartemquin during the spring of 2016. She feels very lucky to have found the supportive and collaborative filmmaking community that is Kartemquin, and to have the opportunity to work with and learn from its talented filmmakers and staff everyday. Julia believes in the ability of documentary film to inspire empathy and create impact, and is dedicated to bringing Kartemquin’s films to as many viewers as possible. Her responsibilities include managing social media and data collection for the Communications and Distribution department, as well as assisting in the development of marketing campaigns for individual films and the organization as a whole. Julia graduated with a BA in History from Skidmore College in Saratoga Springs, NY. Outside of documentary, Julia volunteers with Chicago's Connections for Abused Women and their Children (CAWC). She likes sketch comedy and houseplants.
