    About Jules Hart

    Award-winning film producer and director Jules Hart is the founder of Eye Goddess Films. Her work has aired on PBS and screened at a number of festival venues including Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival; Carmel Art & Film Festival; the Ojai Film Festival; and the Athena Film Festival at Barnard College in New York City. Hart picked up Best Female Filmmaker at the Action On Film Festival in Pasadena, CA, and an Emerging Artist Award at the Beloit International Film Festival in 2011.

    Through her work, Hart has explored such diverse topics as storefront churches, Latina healers, drumming as a spiritual practice, and art as a vehicle for healing. Her documentaries have won several awards including Best Documentary at the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival and Best Faith Based Film at the AOF International Film Festival. Other venues where her documentaries have screened are the United Nations Commission For the Status of Women in New York and at Michael Moore's State Theatre in Traverse City, Michigan.

    Hart transitioned from a 20-year career in front of the camera as an international fashion model, to her present role behind the camera after creating a short film as a homework assignment for a Film and Folklore class at UCLA. It was at that point she realized her true calling. As a filmmaker, Hart taps into her own feminism and dedication to women’s rights to tell compelling stories about other women’s struggles, challenges and victories.

    Another passion of Ms. Hart’s is working with local business owners, entrepreneurs, and artists to create effective marketing videos to help them reach a larger audience, whether for television or the web. Jules Hart has lectured at Antioch University, Whittier College and UCLA, her alma mater, on topics such as Film and Folklore, Women in the Arts, and Women and Religion.
