George Cashel Stoney is a legendary documentary filmmaker who is also considered to be a father of public access television.  He has mentored hundreds of young filmmakers as a professor of production and media theory at NYU, where he has taught since 1970.  At NYU, he co-founded the Alternate Media Center, and his interns eventually went on the start the Alliance for Community Media. 

George was born in Winston-Salem, NC, on July 1, 1916.  Prior to his film career, he worked as a freelance journalist, and a photo intelligence officer.  He began making films in 1946, focusing on films primarily in the areas of health and social change.  Eventually he became Executive Director of the National Film Board of Canada’s influential Challenge for Change series from 1966-1970.
