Pivot Pictures/International Center for Transitional Justice / USA
In April 2008 Bruni Burres joined the International Center for Transitional Justice (www.ictj.org) to create and launch Pivot Pictures; an initiative to use media to further the interests of transitional justice through the creation of excellent media and the subsequent dissemination of this media to effect social change.
From 2006-2008 Bruni was the Senior Consultant with the Sundance Documentary Program (SDP). At the SDP she worked to expand the roster of national and international documentary filmmakers working with the program, deepen national and international collaborations with filmmakers and cultural institutions, and broaden the human rights themes currently explored by the SDP.
From 1991-2008 Bruni was the programmer and director for the Human Rights Watch International Film Festival. The festival began in New York City in 1988; it now travels to over 50 cities throughout the North America with its flagship festivals in New York and London, as well as special co-presentations in Buenos Aires, Brussels, Munich, Rio de Janeiro, Sderot (Israel) and Zurich. The festival’s high school program brings human rights videos and curriculum to teenagers throughout the US annually, and for the past 6 years we have collaborated with the Media That Matters on line human rights short film festival.
Bruni holds a masters degree from NYU in their Interactive Telecommunications Program.
