Nicole Docta (she/her) is an award-winning documentary filmmaker who has focused her career on producing socially provoking BIPOC stories and managing their impact campaigns. She offers her unique lens as a Korean-American transnational, transracial adoptee who grew up in Wisconsin. Nicole was part of the producing teams on Peabody Award-winning and Emmy-nominated THE JUDGE (TIFF 2017), Emmy Award-winning BELLY OF THE BEAST (HRWFF 2020), and duPont Award-winner THROUGH THE NIGHT (Tribeca 2020). Not only does Nicole work to improve outcomes for the communities in her films, she strives to enhance the documentary industry. Nicole served as the Special Initiatives Producer at Firelight Media for three years co-curating the Beyond Resilience Series and helping to implement new artist programs to support BIPOC filmmakers. Her latest work includes producing THE DEAD ZONE about the little known pipeline to prison, the pretrial detention system and her directorial debut, ADOPTING, which explores the systemic changes needed in adoption after cutting ties with her own adoptive parents. Nicole is also a USC CPD NextGen Creative Fellow, one of DOC NYC’s 40 Under 40, and a Sundance Producer Fellow.
