Nina Yang Bongiovi

Film Producer

Nina Yang Bongiovi is the powerhouse producer with a flawless 5-for-5 record of critically-acclaimed but monetarily successful films by auteur filmmakers of color–all of which premiered in competition and were successfully acquired at Sundance Film Festival. A twenty year veteran filmmaker, she partnered with Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker in 2009 to create Significant Productions; together, they have produced Fruitvale Station (2013), Dope (2015), “Roxanne Roxanne” (2017), “Sorry to Bother You” (2018), and several other critically-acclaimed films. Previously, Nina Yang Bongiovi was a fixture in Hong Kong for Chinese films–an expertise and network that she still uses to this day. Many take diverse representation for granted in today’s zeitgeist; but Bongiovi has been pioneering those voices –both in front and behind the camera–for decades.
