Andrea Nix Fine is an Oscar, Emmy and Peabody Award-winning filmmaker. Her lifelong dream to make films around the world came to life when she walked through National Geographic’s doors. From filming an Inuit polar bear trek across Greenland, to directing a film about a 1,000 lb. Nile croc in Tanzania, she zig zagged across the world for the next decade for NGT capturing magnificent adventure and profound cultural moments.
Realizing the power of film to make change, Andrea teamed up with directing partner and husband Sean Fine to connect audiences to the personal, visceral and sensory. Their films garner as much attention for their beauty as their message. War/Dance, their doc feature about former child soldiers competing in Uganda’s National Music Competition would go on to earn an Oscar nomination for Best Feature Documentary, win Sundance’s Documentary Directing Award and Emmys for Best Cinematography and Best Documentary. That success was followed the 2013 win of the Academy Award for Best Short Documentary for their film about homeless teen artist Inocente, followed by their HBO film Life According to Sam which made the Oscar shortlist, earned a Peabody and an Emmy Award for Exceptional Merit in Documentary Filmmaking.
Andrea brings her signature authenticity to the commercial world, working with clients as varied as Verizon, Panera, the Smithsonian, Save the Children, Gatorade, Gillette and more. As a directing team, The Fines are commercially represented by Interrogate.
The Fines are currently launching Change Content, a social impact studio that transforms the power of true stories to promote change. The roster spans feature projects, limited series, stage, and documentaries.
Andrea is a member of the Academy and the DGA, has been a Sundance Film Festival judge, and holds a Doctorate of Fine Arts from Colby College.
