PROFILE


Director/Producer - Joycelyn Bejar

 

Joycelyn Bejar began her career as a journalist with the intention of becoming a foreign correspondent.  As she began to travel, explore and investigate the world over, she discovered the art form of story telling.  She realized the different methods of recounting stories through her travels and experiences.

 As a graduate in Journalism/Political Science from the University of Florida in her last semester she was awarded an internship with ABC NEWS NIGHTLINE.

From there she moved to Washington, D.C. to find out what the nation’s Capitol was all about and began work as a segment producer/writer for WTTG, The Fox Morning News.  After gaining some experience, she moved back to her hometown, Miami, to work for WTVJ, an NBC owned and operated station, as a writer for the morning news. After seven years of working in the news industry, Bejar yearned for something more creative. She searched for a way to get the picture to the world. She entered the film industry and continued her career producing commercials, music videos and other independent films.  In 2000, Bejar founded Jade Films, inc. and in 2003, founded Imperial Dragon Films a non-profit organization, the venture to facilitate the development of her talent in blending fact finding with storytelling through the art of the cinema and sharing it with the world. In 2005, Bejar premiered her first independent documentary film, “ Cuba: Beyond the Pearl of the Antilles.”
