Joana Vicente

 

Joana Vicente has been the Executive Director of the IFP since December 2009. Prior to this, she and her partner Jason Kliot produced/executive produced over forty films by such acclaimed directors as Jim Jarmusch, Miguel Arteta, Brian De Palma, Hal Hartley, Steven Soderbergh, Nicole Holofcener, and Todd Solondz.

 

She has co-founded three separate and unique film production entities over the course of her career. Among the many films that Vicente and Kliot have produced are Tony Bui’s Sundance Grand Jury Prize and Audience Award-winner THREE SEASONS, Jim Jarmusch’s cult classic COFFEE AND CIGARETTES, Niels Mueller’s THE ASSASSINATION OF RICHARD NIXON, Todd Solondz’s Sundance Grand Jury Prize-winning WELCOME TO THE DOLLHOUSE, Brian De Palma’s controversial REDACTED and Alex Gibney’s Academy Award® nominated ENRON: THE SMARTEST GUYS IN THE ROOM.

 

Vicente’s films have garnered numerous accolades and awards, including twenty-three Independent Spirit Award nominations and four wins. In 2007, she was the recipient of the Made in NY Award for individuals who have made outstanding contributions to New York City’s entertainment industry.

 

Vicente graduated from the Masters program at The Catholic University of Portugal with a degree in Philosophy and began her career as the press attaché for the Portuguese delegate—and former Prime Minister of Portugal—at the European Parliament. She later became a radio news producer for the United Nations before turning her attention to film.
