Diane Zander

An Emmy-award winner for her work on the documentary Moving Stories, Diane Zander makes documentaries while teaching media production and documentary filmmaking at University of Texas at Austin. Her film and video work has been shown at festivals across North America and has appeared on Image Union, a Chicago PBS showcase for independent film and video. Diane has been honored with grants in support of her work from the Texas Council for the Humanities, Texas Filmmakers’ Production Fund, Women in Film, the Liberace Foundation, and the Caucus Foundation for Television Producers, Writers, and Directors. Her previous work includes Pretty as a Picture (1999), Beauty School (1997), and paternity is uncertain (1997).
