Juliana Schatz Preston
Juliana Schatz Preston is a Colombian-American documentary film producer and director. She started her career at the award-winning investigative series Frontline, where she contributed to 11 public affairs documentaries -- including two Emmy Award winners and one Peabody Award winner.
Her work with PBS FRONTLINE, The GroundTruth Project, Al Jazeera and Sender Films has taken her from the peaks of Giza to the sky-high Rocky Mountains. She and her teammates were nominated for a Livingston Award for Young Journalists for their work in Egypt in 2011.
She is presently in development on a documentary about children's mental health and access to care, and in post-production on a film about gang violence and extrajudicial killings of minors in El Salvador.
Juliana's work has been supported by The Investigative Fund, where she is an Ida B. Wells fellow and by the ITVS Diversity Development Fund.
In 2015, she completed two full-length, Spanish language documentaries for Canal Capital, Bogota's public television network, about Colombians exiled during the country's decades long conflict.
