Mini Bio (1)

Lili Schad began her career jumping off cliffs ahead of the world's greatest skiers to photograph for Warren Miller's ski movies. She has molded her career by combining her love of nature and adventure with a passion for the art of film. Betraying Reason (2003), her first dramatic feature, is the culmination of 15 years of experience making award winning documentary, adventure and social activism films. She has worked with many environmental and social non-profits to help promote their causes with dynamic and impactful films. Lili's films have screened at 17 film festivals and garnered 11 awards, including the Jury Award at Telluride Mountain Film Festival for Let the River Run, a magical journey through Glen Canyon created in collaboration with legendary environmentalist David Brower as his last work before his death. A chance meeting on the beach outside her studio in Half Moon Bay California with Grant Washburn led to their epic documentary, Maverick's: A Documentary Film (1998), chronicling the discovery and conquest of the world's largest surfable wave. The film had a successful specialty theater, PBS and international television release, and has become a surf classic and best selling home video.
