The news of artist, environmental activist, documentary film producer and philanthropist Susan Swartz.
As an environmental and humanitarian activist, Susan knows that documentary film can be one of the most powerful mediums for shedding light on pressing social issues. That’s why Susan and her husband, Jim, are founding members of Impact Partners, a unique organization that brings together filmmakers and investors. In recent years, Impact Partners has helped fund important and award-winning films like The Cove, An Inconvenient Truth, The Garden and Freeheld.
And this year, Susan is proud to announce that three Impact Partner films will be premiering next month at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. Held in and around Park City, Utah on January 20-30, Sundance is considered the preeminent independent film festival in the nation, if not the world.Read More
Great news! Susan is profiled in a feature article and photo story of the August 2010 issue of Jo Lee Magazine, an international publication dedicated to unexpected intellectual content, philanthropy and lifestyle.
During the Sundance Film Festival last winter, Ray Scotty Morris, a renowned writer and photojournalist whose lens has captured presidents and celebrities, came to Park City to interview Susan about her painting career and her activism. Susan was surprised and honored to being included in a publication with such a strong message about charitable giving and humanitarian outreach.
