Her films have been selected at over 100 film festivals including Sundance, Tribeca, and Rotterdam, have won 20 awards including Audience and Grand Jury Prizes, been translated into 8 languages, and been shown at museums including LACMA and Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art. Tiffany’s films are a fusion of documentary and narrative and are known for their whimsical yet provocative approach to unraveling complicated subjects like politics, cultural identity, technology, and music. Her films include “Life, Liberty & The Pursuit of Happiness” about reproductive rights in America, and “The Tribe,” an exploration of American Jewish identity through the history of the Barbie doll, and “Yelp: With Apologies to Allen Ginsberg’s Howl,” about our addiction to technology.
