Narrative Program Coordinator
After graduation from the Maurice Kanbar Institute of Film and Television at the Tisch School of the Arts at NYU, Tamara Melnik moved to Los Angeles where she worked in production on countless commercials, feature films and music videos. After nearly a decade in Europe—where she owned her own catering business in Paris and worked on documentary films in Germany (Berlin and Munich)—Melnik relocated back to San Francisco to produce the feature film Juko’s Time Machine in the summer of 2009. Juko's Time Machine premiered at the Los Angeles Comedy Fest and Sf Indie Fest to name a few. Melnik then went on to work with Oscar-nominated director Mark Kitchell on his comprehensive film about the history of the environmental movement, A Fierce Green Fire, which premiered at Sundance 2012. She is thrilled to be part of the Filmmaker360 team at the Film Society.
