Untold stories. Unexpected perspectives.

Independent filmmaking since 1985.

Jezebel Productions is a women’s film production company founded by Greta Schiller and Andrea Weiss in 1985.

As early pioneers of LGBT and feminist filmmaking, Greta and Andrea have reframed the traditional narratives that shape history and define society. Their work is both progressive in content and transgressive in style, at times fusing fiction and nonfiction, incorporating avant garde opera, staging theatrical monologues, drawing upon spoken poetry, or taking the form of immersive cinema.

Jezebel has garnered two Emmy Awards, three Fulbright Awards, and numerous international film festival awards.
