Jamila C. Fairley
Jamila C. Fairley is passionate about creating a space for inclusive, representative, and empowered new storytelling
Fairley came to the BELLA! documentary project soon after learning of Abzug’s leadership, activism, and dynamism. She is inspired to bring Abzug’s commitment to feminism, race relations, the LGBT community, and creating a better overall human experience to an audience who has not had exposure to Abzug’s contributions. A neophyte documentary producer, Fairley began her career as a CPA with PricewaterhouseCoopers.
There, her main clients were major studios, including The Walt Disney Company and Warner Brothers. Most recently, Fairley joined Re-Emerging Films from Twentieth Century Fox, where she was a lead expert on domestic and international Production Tax Incentives, securing financing for the studio’s feature films and television shows.
Along the way, she has performed various on-set production roles and produced numerous EPK segments. In addition, Fairley was an Associate Producer on the documentary, RE-EMERGING: THE JEWS OF NIGERIA. Like Mr. Miyagi’s “Wax-on. Wax off.” lesson, all of these experiences have prepared Fairley for winning in the world of producing independent film.
Fairley earned her Bachelor of Business Administration from Emory University’s Goizueta School of Business, her Juris Doctorate from Temple University’s Beasley School of Law, and is easy with a pun and laugh.
