 Tiffany Shlain Biography

Emmy-nominated filmmaker, speaker, and Webby Awards founder Tiffany Shlain has received over 80 awards and distinctions for her films and work, including selection for the Albert Einstein Foundation’s initiative Genius: 100 Visions for the Future, being on NPR’s list of Best Commencement Speeches, and being named by Newsweek as “one of the women shaping the 21st century.” The Museum of Modern Art in New York just premiered her live cinematic essay performance, Dear Human, on Feb 15th, 2020. Her first book "24/6: The Power of Unplugging One Day a Week" was published by Simon & Schuster’s Gallery Books in the fall of 2019 and has been featured in the New York Times, Harvard Business Review, and the Washington Post. 24/6 received The Marshall McLuhan Outstanding Book Award, a starred review from Publisher's Weekly and was included on several bestseller lists including Best Business Books, Top Tech Books and the Library Journal national bestseller list. "24/6" explores her family’s decade-long, transformative practice of turning off screens one day each week for what they call their Technology Shabbats; the past, present and future of technology; and the effects our 24/7 world has on individuals, our relationships, and our society.

Shlain has premiered four films at Sundance, including her acclaimed feature documentary Connected: An Autobiography about Love, Death & Technology, which the New York Times hailed as “high-tech Terry Gilliam,” and “examining everything from the Big Bang to Twitter.” The US State Department has selected four of Shlain’s films including Connected to represent the US at embassies around the world for their American Film Showcase, and she serves as a film expert for selected envoys.

Shlain's film 50/50: Rethinking the Past, Present, and Future of Women + Power, premiered live at TEDWomen, at 275 TEDx’s globally, and on Refinery29. It was the centerpiece film for first annual 50/50 Day which had over 11,000 screenings around the globe all linked together in an online discussion about what it’s going to take to get to a more gender balanced world. Her films and art installations have shown at museums including MoMA NYC and the Leonardo da Vinci Museum.

Her original series, "The Future Starts Here" was nominated for an Emmy Award in New Approaches: Arts, Lifestyle, Culture and has over 40 million views to date. Shlain’s films employ her signature style of fast-paced images, colorful animations, deep scientific research, and daring and funny insights to encourage us all to think about where we’re headed in our increasingly connected world. Her whole list of films can be seen here.

She is a world-renowned speaker and has given keynotes at Google, Harvard, and NASA, and was the closing speaker for TEDWomen and TEDMED. Tiffany was the on-air Internet expert on ABC’s Good Morning America with Diane Sawyer in the early days of the web, is a Henry Crown Fellow of the Aspen Institute, and was invited to advise then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about the Internet and technology. She currently serves on the Leadership Board of the Center on Media and Child Health at Harvard’s Boston Children’s Hospital. She has contributed articles to Harvard Business Review and CNN Documentary Magazine. TED Conferences published a TEDBook based on one of her films, Brain Power: From Neurons to Networks, and she has been writing a quarterly newsletter about ideas and culture since 1998 called Breakfast @ Tiffany’s. She runs the Let it Ripple film studio where they make films and create global days around subjects shaping our lives. Their global initiative Character Day features films on character development (including her films The Science of Character, The Making of a Mensch and The Adaptable Mind) and brought together over 200,000 groups in 125 countries and all 50 states. She is also co-founder of 50/50 Day, Character Day and the International Academy of Digital Arts & Sciences.
