In Person:  Theo Rigby

Theo Rigby is a director, cinematographer and interactive storyteller based out of San Francisco.  He believes in the power of image and sound to create awareness and dialogue about the world’s most pressing social and political issues.

Rigby’s last project, Immigration Nation (iNation), is a series of short films about immigration in the U.S. including The Caretaker, The Mayor, and Marathon, as well as an online storytelling platform, and a series of live storytelling events.  iNation has been showcased on the New York Times website, nationally broadcast on PBS, and shown at Ellis Island, the 2014 New York Film Festival, and 2012 Cannes Film Festival.   The project received a MacArthur Documentary Film grant, as well as a Tribeca Institute New Media Fund grant.  His film, Sin Pais (Without Country), won a Student Academy Award, has screened in over 30 film festivals, and was nationally broadcast on PBS’ independent documentary showcase POV in 2012.

His current projects include a feature documentary on the contemporary Sanctuary movement, and Waking Dream, a series of short documentary films exploring the lives of young, undocumented people in the U.S. who have DACA permits.
