The Spring 2023 Artist-in-Residence for the FMI Department is Julia Golonka, who will be on campus from Wednesday, March 22, until Friday, March 24. Julia Golonka is an editor and cinematographer with a degree in film from the Maryland Institute College of Art. She has worked on documentaries covering a diverse range of topics, including fine arts, prisoner reentry, and Anatomy of Wings, a film shot over 12 years about an after school program that became a family. Most recently, she co-produced and edited Do Whatever You Want All the Time, which documents the Baltimore music scene from 2005-2020.  She currently works as a Senior Editor and Producer at a Baltimore-based production company. She was a 2019 Saul Zaentz Innovation Fund Fellow for her documentary Don’t Put Her Down about one of the first women to front a bluegrass band, and a 2021 Saul Zaentz Storylab Fellow for her latest project about the memory palace memorization technique.

On Thursday, March 23, we will screen both Do Whatever You Want All the Time (with director Sam Sessa in attendance) and Don’t Put Her Down.
