Award-winning filmmaker and thought leader, Sylvia Binsfeld studied fine art at the Academy of Art in San Francisco, but then ended up starting a career as an actress. Frustrated with the scripts she was handed, and believing in the power of story, Sylvia very quickly moved to the other side of the camera where she has more control over the messages she is putting out in the world.
Sylvia reflected on what would have enough power heal and to create a positive change in consciousness, helping to uplift people's personal lives, careers and society in general. The answer came...story. It has tremendous power with a personal and global reach. Story is what connects us and gives our life meaning.
Sylvia uses story to create thought-provoking films, and speaks publically showing her audience how to use story to become powerful activators of the positive changes they want to see both in their own lives and in the world. She encourages leaders, luminaries, media makers, and writers to use the power of story to take on leadership positions, navigating their lives, and contributing to the world at large.
