CREW

ELIZA MCNITT | Writer and Director

Eliza McNitt found filmmaking through science. A top winner of the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair for research on Honeybee Colony Collapse Disorder, Eliza's first film was inspired by a desire to communicate the devastating impact of vanishing honeybees. Her documentary Requiem for the Honeybee was broadcast internationally on C-Span. Since then, Eliza has developed a passion for telling stories that challenge contemporary views of science. A graduate of New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, Eliza was the winner of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Production Grant for Without Fire which was filmed on the Navajo Reservation in Arizona. @elizamcnitt
