As Honorary Artist in Residence at the University of Tennessee/Knoxville, Gloria Greenfield has joint appointments in Cinema Studies and the School of Journalism and Electronic Media. She brings over 30 years of strategic planning, marketing, and management experience to her current work dedicated to strengthening Jewish identity, Jewish nationhood, and the values of freedom and democracy through film. Since founding Doc Emet Productions in 2007, where she serves as president, her film credits include The Case for Israel – Democracy’s Outpost (2008), Unmasked Judeophobia (2011), Body and Soul – The State of the Jewish Nation (2014), and The Fight of Our Lives – Defeating the Ideological War Against the West (2018). Greenfield’s films have received international acclaim and have been translated into Arabic, Finnish, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Swedish.
In January 1980, she was featured in Ms. Magazine as a “woman to watch in the ‘80s.” An alumna of the State University of New York at Oswego, she was honored with their Distinguished Alumnus Award in 1981. In 1985, upon conclusion of her graduate studies, Hebrew College awarded Greenfield the Sara Feinsilver Prize as the outstanding female graduating student; and in May 2005, the Bureau of Jewish Education of Greater Boston presented Greenfield with their Keter Torah Award for her contribution to Jewish education. Greenfield was also the recipient of the Haiti Jewish Refugee Legacy Project’s 2012 Tikkun Olam Award for “shining a much-needed bright light on the dark seen and unseen world of anti-Semitism today” through her film Unmasked Judeophobia.
