Gabriel Sedgwick hails from the grim and frostbitten kingdom of Sweden but lives in New York City, where he has produced both fiction and documentary films that have screened at festivals including Sundance, SXSW, International Film Festival Rotterdam, New Directors/New Films, BAMcinemaFest, Full Frame, Sheffield Doc/Fest, BAM’s New Voices in Black Cinema, CPH:DOX, and Karlovy Vary. His productions include the documentaries Hail Satan? and The Pain of Others and the fiction features August the First and Somewhere in the Middle.

 

Sedgwick also co-produced Captivated: The Trials of Pamela Smart, which premiered in competition at Sundance in 2014, and line produced Kiki, which premiered in competition at Sundance in 2016. On the shorts side, he produced Penny Lane’s sea-monkey documentary Just Add Water for CNN Films and Great Big Story, which garnered massive online popularity with over six million views and counting, and Nellie Bly Makes the News for the Center for Investigative Reporting / PBS.

 

He's a Sundance Creative Producing Labs fellow, Berlinale Talent fellow, and two-time Sundance Institute Documentary Film Program Grantee. When not making movies, he can be heard emitting strange noises in the band Odd Rumblings.
