Filmmaker / Director
Ali Tabrizi grew up on the Southeast coast of England, and spent much of his early childhood exploring the world with his camera, daydreaming about the ocean and the hidden world beneath the waves. After his family moved to Iran for several years during a time of political turmoil and revolution, he became intimately aware of how untold stories can lead to corruption and injustice, sparking an interest in war photojournalism. After spending his teenage years reading as much as he could about global issues and studying Art & Design and Art History at Canterbury College, Tabrizi was accepted into London College of Communication to study photojournalism. Instead, he turned down the offer and bought a one-way ticket to India, and began to teach himself filmmaking soon after. His interest in wanting to expose the truth and his passion for environmental issues soon led him to start working on the Netflix Original documentary, Seaspiracy.

Combining her passion for the natural world with her creative skill set, she is dedicated to furthering the conversation on effective environmental and animal advocacy.
Kip Andersen’s awakening as a filmmaker came as a result of An Inconvenient Truth. After seeing the film, he dramatically changed his lifestyle and believed he was doing everything he could to help the planet. But his life took a different direction when he found out animal agriculture is the leading cause of environmental destruction. Together with Keegan Kuhn he co-produced his first film, Cowspiracy: The Sustainability Secret, which became an overnight viral success and ignited the environmental movement. Following this success, he was invited to speak in front of the European Parliament, and a new cut of the film was executive produced by Leonardo DiCaprio, and exclusively released on Netflix in September 2015.
