Laura Azevedo has over twenty years experience as a production manager and supervising producer, with credits on national series such as NOVA, American Experience and FETCH! with Ruff Ruffman. In her tenure at FC she has positioned the organization as one of the few non-profit fiscal sponsors able to handle both traditional and crowd-sourced funding in an easy and streamlined fashion — a huge asset to FC filmmakers as they increasingly turn online for project funding. She manages all strategic planning for the Collaborative, and is interested in implementing further networking and educational opportunities for the independent media-making community. She is co-creator and current director of the Boston International Kids Film Festival.
