Mark Moskowitz, Director/Producer

Mark Moskowitz, producer and director of STONE READER, is known for his issue-oriented media, including more than three thousand political spots for hundreds of races nationally and worldwide. He has been awarded “Pollies,” political media’s highest award, for five consecutive years. Newsweek described his media as “brilliantly targeted,” and CNN called it “a model of the medium.”

Besides his political work, Moskowitz has created promotional media for high profile athletes, musicians, CEOs, and others in the public eye. For over forty years he’s specialized in telling reality stories by bringing amateurs to life on-camera.

STONE READER, his first feature film, won the Audience Award for Best Feature Film (a first for a nonfiction narrative) and a Special Grand Jury Honor (the festival’s top prize) at the 2002 Slamdance Festival. The International Documentary Association (IDA) nominated STONE READER for its Distinguished Achievement Award in the Feature category. IDA is the largest association of nonfiction filmmakers in the world and an IDA nomination is one of the most prestigious honors a nonfiction film can receive.

His latest film is “It Was the Music”, a 10-part series to be distributed in 2020.
