With many years experience in the film industry, Holly Mosher has devoted her efforts to her true passion of uniting political purpose with art. In 2004, she had her directorial debut with Hummingbird, an inspiring documentary about two non-profits in Brazil that work with street children and women who suffer domestic violence. Hummingbird won numerous awards, including Best Human Rights Documentary in Rome and Best Short for Children’s Advocacy at the Artivist Film Festival. Most recently, Holly produced two films about the dangerous and misleading tactics of the pharmaceutical industry. The films, Side Effects and Money Talks: Profits Before Patient Safety, received unprecedented international press attention and have been heralded for raising awareness about a timely and important topic.
To ensure that socially conscious films are brought to the public, Holly teamed up to launch Hummingbird Pictures, an independent film distribution company. Currently, Holly is involved with several documentaries. She co-produced Maybe Baby, which presents the challenges facing older single women trying to get pregnant with modern medical technology. Holly is currently executive producing for Free For All!, a film that explores political scandals in Ohio revolving around election issues. Holly is also in production on her second directorial project, Small Change: World of Difference, where she is following the work of the Nobel Peace Prize winning Muhammad Yunus and the Grameen Bank. She is also a founding partner of Be Well Media, a non-profit which aims to create films that help inspire people to take their health into their own hands.
