Emmy® award-winning filmmaker, speaker, and writer

Gayle Kirschenbaum is an Emmy-winning filmmaker/TV producer/blogger and personality. Called “the Nora Ephron of documentaries”, Gayle has turned the camera on herself in her most recently completed feature documentary. LOOK AT US NOW, MOTHER! is about the transformation of a highly charged mother/daughter relationship from Mommie Dearest to Dear Mom. This is the “larger version” of her humorous short film, MY NOSE, in which we follow her mother’s relentless campaign to get her to have a nose job. Prior to this film, Kirschenbaum made a poignant and wacky film with her dog about the human/canine bond called A DOG'S LIFE: A DOGAMENTARY, which premiered on HBO. She created several reality shows that premiered on TLC and Discovery Health, and co-created Judgment Day that also aired on HBO. Kirschenbaum is a member of the Producers Guild of America, New York Women in Film and Television, Film Fatales and is a judge for the Emmys. Gayle currently blogs for the Huffington Post.
