Rachel James

Associate Director of IMATS & Sloate Media Center


IMATS , Library, Sloate Media Center


I oversee operations, as well as consult for and collaborate with faculty, staff, and students on creative projects. I program events and workshops for the growing center roster, and teach practical and creative media techniques.

I received my MFA in Screenwriting from Columbia and a BFA in Film/Video from California Institute of the Arts. I produce a podcast called Positively Gotham Gal and am currently in development for two feature films. More about me at rjamesfilms.com

Contact me at rjames@barnard.edu or stop by my office Milstein 221 if you want to discuss creative ideas, center programming, or if you just want to nerd out about cinema and feminism.
