Sara Nodjoumi most recently produced the feature documentary THE IRAN JOB, which was released in the U.S. theatrically and is currently available online worldwide. 

In Germany, the film was shortlisted for a German Academy Award. For THE IRAN JOB, Nodjoumi managed two of the most successful Kickstarter campaigns of all time, raising a total of $166,000. In 2002, she co-produced and co-directed I CALL MYSELF PERSIAN: IRANIANS IN AMERICA, which aired on PBS and premiered at the MoMA Documentary Fortnight. In 2004, Nodjoumi joined director Till Schauder as an Associate Producer on his feature films SANTA SMOKES and DUKE'S HOUSE. Their collaboration continues with the feature documentary THE REGGAE BOYZ, which is currently in post-production, and WHEN GOD SLEEPS, which is in production and is supported by Catapult Film Fund, Fork Films, Sundance Institute, ITVS, the Jerome Foundation, and others.

At the Fall 2016 Film Residency, Sara led one-on-one workshop sessions with the graduate students.
