Katerina Cizek

Emmy-winning documentary-maker working across many media platforms.

Katerina Cizek is a Czech-Canadian documentary-maker, working across many media platforms. Her work has documented the Digital Revolution, and has itself become part of the movement. For five years, she was the National Film Board of Canada’s Filmmaker-in-Residence at an inner-city hospital, in a many-media project that won a 2008 Webby Award (”The Internet’s Oscars”), a Banff Award, and a Canadian New Media Award. Her previous award-winning films include Seeing is Believing: Handicams, Human Rights and the News (2002, co-directed with Peter Wintonick).

She is the director of HIGHRISE, a multi year, cross-media, collaborative documentary project (also at the National Film Board of Canada) about the human experience of vertical living around the globe. Out My Window, the new interactive web documentary from the HIGHRISE project, was one of the world’s first interactive 360°  documentaries delivered entirely on the web and it was the winner of the inaugural IDFA DocLab Award for Digital Storytelling at IDFA 2010. In April, she was awarded an International Digital Emmy for Out My Window, for best digital program: non fiction. The documentary also received a Webby nominee.

She teaches and presents around the world about her innovative approach to the documentary genre.
