Jonathan Lewis is an award winning (2019 AT&T Film Awards Underrepresented Winner) filmmaker who has been a professional director for the past eight years. He attended Clark Atlanta University where he took an array of film courses under the watchful eye of his professor, Dr. Herbert Eichelberger - the same professor who taught legendary director Spike Lee.
His debut directorial short film, “Living & Loving in the Moment,” received immense positive reactions from viewers around the world. Since its premiere, it has screened at several film festivals including The Pan-African Film Festival, and most notably Cannes Short Film Corner.
His most recent film, “Sojourn,” is an intimate exploration of black male identity. It has screened at Urbanworld Film Festival, Atlanta Film Festival, Austin Film Festival, Raindance Film Festival, Holly Shorts as one of the Stage 32 winners and most notably, The National Museum of African American History & Culture, apart of the Smithsonian African American Film Festival.
At Jonathan's core, he is rooted in the stripped-down raw fundamentals of storytelling; always stimulating the mind of the viewer- challenging them to step beyond their boundaries into his visual escapade. Because of this personal mandate, he has developed a reputation of creating bold visuals, interlaced with thought provoking story.
Jonathan is currently developing his next project.
