Fandor Festival Podcast Ep. 49: Marc Shaffer, Documentary Filmmaker, Investigative Reporter, & Founder of Inside Out Media

The team sits down with Marc Shaffer, Documentary Filmmaker, Investigative Reporter, and Founder of Inside Out Media.


Marc Shaffer’s latest film is Exposing Muybridge, the first feature documentary on the revolutionary 19th-century photographer Eadweard Muybridge. Exactly 150 years after Muybridge made the very first photographs of Northern California winemaking in Sonoma, Exposing Muybridge has its California premiere at the Sonoma International Film Festival.

Over a documentary career spanning more than two decades, Marc has traveled the world making films on many of the most pressing issues of our time, from environmental threats to corporate corruption, democratic integrity, and economic inequality to immigration and problems in the American healthcare system. Marc’s films have received three national Emmy nominations, among many honors, and have been watched by millions of people on PBS, National Geographic, Netflix, Al Jazeera, online and in theaters.

Fandor is a proud sponsor of Sonoma International Film Festival.

Notably, Exposing Muybridge, won the WGA Award for Best Documentary Screenplay in 2022.
