About Jeff

Jeff L. Lieberman is an award-winning Journalist, Producer and Documentary Filmmaker. His TV Specials, News Stories and Documentaries have appeared on CBS, HBO, CNN, FOX and on the websites of Yahoo!, The New York Post, CBS Moneywatch, and The Huffington Post.

Jeff’s recent Academy Award-Qualifying documentary film, “RE-EMERGING: The Jews of Nigeria” opened theatrically in 2013 in New York and Los Angeles, and premiered at festivals in Toronto, Boston, Washington, Vancouver, London, Switzerland & Israel. The film gained rave reviews from The New York Times, NPR, The Hollywood Reporter & Village Voice, with New York’s Amsterdam News proclaiming the film as “one of the must-see documentaries of 2013”.

Jeff’s newest film is “The Amazing Nina Simone”, a documentary exploring the artistry and intentions of Musician and Civil Rights Activist, Nina Simone.  Speaking to those who knew Nina best, the film draws a portrait of one of music’s least understood, and most captivating performers.  The film premiered at the FIPA Film Festival in the South of France in January 2015, and will debut later this year.

Jeff is the founder of RE-EMERGING Films, which also regularly produces documentary programming for Coca-Cola, Walt Disney Films, Showtime’s “Homeland”, Entertainment Tonight, The Insider, Macy’s, Marlo Thomas & Wine Enthusiast Magazine. Jeff also directed, edited and produced the hit viral election video, “Call Your Zeyde”.

Previous to this, Jeff was a Writer/Producer with CBS National News and a Video Reporter with The New York Post website, covering events all over New York and Washington, DC including the Obama Inauguration, New York’s Fashion Week, the Times Square terrorism attack, and The September 11th 10-year Anniversary commemoration.
