During the fall, Thom Powers teaches in the School of Visuals Arts’ MFA Social Documentary Film Program. This Masters program guides & supports emerging artists to explore fully the social documentary film form and, in so doing, to find innovative ways to examine and communicate the core experiences and events that define us.

For 12 years prior, Thom Powers taught “Documentary Development, Research & Financing” at New York University’s School of Continuing Professional Studies. Former students include Jennifer Venditti (director of the award-winning BILLY THE KID) and Beth Kruvant (director of the award-winning HEART OF STONE).
