Sydney Bowie discovered her love of documentary film as an undergraduate at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), where she graduated in 2014 with Summa Cum Laude and Phi Beta Kappa honors. Her short films have been selected to screen at festivals across the United States. In addition, Sydney has worked alongside noted documentary filmmakers, including Oscar-nominated Robert Kenner (Food Inc.) and world renowned British journalist and filmmaker Sean Langan. Pursuing her passion for storytelling and travel, she has lived abroad in three countries: Argentina, Australia, and Spain. For the 2016-2017 academic year, Sydney has received the prestigious Fulbright Scholarship to work on her most recent film the New Migration Project, documenting the lives of immigrants in Spain. Additionally, she has been selected to present on her project at the 63rd Annual Fulbright Commission Berlin Seminar in March 2017 and to represent the U.S.-Spanish Fulbright Commission at the US-EU Young Leaders Enrichment Seminar on Migration this April.
