Documentarian and President, Good Egg Productions, Inc.
Lisa Gossels is an Emmy Award-winning social issue documentarian whose two films have garnered 20 awards and a CINE Golden Eagle on the festival circuit. Her first film, “The Children of Chabannes”, has been praised as “one of the most heartening Holocaust films ever made--splendid, informative and emotionally involving." “My So-Called Enemy,” a documentary about 22 Palestinian and Israeli teenage girls who traveled to the U.S. to participate in a leadership program called Building Bridges for Peace, has been cited as "a powerful exploration of both the pain and growth that real listening brings in a situation of conflict."
Lisa has served as a juror for the News & Documentary Emmy Awards, the Cleveland International Film Festival, the Ivy Film Festival and the Woodstock Film Festival. A member of the Selah Leadership Network, she became a documentarian because she believes in the power of film to affect social change. Lisa is currently traveling with My So-Called Enemy, teaching at high schools and universities and engaging youth, secular and faith communities in dialogue. She is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of Brown University.
