Hi, I’m Rachel Gordon. I have over 15 years of experience working with non-fiction filmmakers to identify receptive homes for their work—in collegiate, non-profit, and other specialty markets. I use targeted strategies to connect diverse video content to responsive audiences.

About Me: Rachel has been in the independent film community for 15 years, collaborating on projects from the production process through distribution. Working as everything from a script reader to a director and producer, Rachel became increasingly curious about what a finished film could accomplish outside of the normal theatrical distribution models. After developing grassroots skills with the National Film Board of Canada, and organizing the educational catalog of the Anti-Defamation League, she started Rachel Gordon Media/Energized Films to enable independent content to reach larger audiences.

Rachel has organized and participated in events and panel discussions for many academic organizations, including the Association of College and Research Librarians (ACRL) and the Consortium of College and University Media Centers (CCUMC). Rachel has also written articles on independent distribution for IndieWire’s Hope For Film, Shooting People and the Reframe Collection. She is a dual member of New York Women in Film and Television (NYWIFT) and Women in Film and Video DC.
