Winner of the Emmy, BAFTA and Peabody Awards, Academy award nominee Ava DuVernay is a writer, director, producer and film distributor. Her directorial work includes the historical drama SELMA, the criminal justice documentary 13TH and Disney’s A WRINKLE IN TIME, which made her the highest grossing African-American woman director in domestic box office history. She is currently in production on her next project based on the infamous crime case known as CENTRAL PARK FIVE, while overseeing production of her critically-acclaimed TV series QUEEN SUGAR. Winner of the 2012 Sundance Film Festival’s Best Director Prize for her micro-budget film MIDDLE OF NOWHERE, DuVernay amplifies the work of people of color and women of all kinds through her indie distribution collective ARRAY, named one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies.
