Urban Nomad 2015 Jury will include Dan Nuxoll, Program Director at Rooftop Films
Dan Nuxoll grew up in Queens and attended Stuyvesant High School in Manhattan, later moving on to Vassar College. Following his return to New York in 1997, Dan began working with Rooftop Films and became full-time Program Director of Rooftop Films in 2002. Since then he has watched the film submissions rise to over 3,000 submissions a year.
The programming for Rooftop Films has received increasing acclaim over the last years, and Dan has curated and organized events across North America and Europe. Dan has expanded Rooftop’s search and acquisition of stunning new venues, helped to expand their event production, rentals and sponsorship divisions, and has managed partnerships with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Sundance Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, Hot Docs, BAM Cinematek, MoMA, SXSW Film Festival, and dozens of acclaimed cultural institutions.
Dan also works as a director, producer, composer and sound designer for films including the wildly entertaining feature documentary Kiss My Snake. He is currently Co-Directing a new documentary feature entitled about a mysterious figure who has been running scandal-plagued film festivals for decades.
Dan has served on film juries for SXSW, Slamdance, River Run, Doc NYC, IFFB and the Denver International Film Festival, and has been named to Indiewire’s Influencers list as well as Brooklyn Magazine’s list of The 100 Most Influential People in Brooklyn Culture.
