The Curator

Nadine Covert is a consultant and specialist in visual arts media. From 1984 until 1998, she worked for the Program for Art on Film where she developed and managed the Art on Screen Database. In the intervening years, she has screened thousands of films on art and architecture, has been a juror for international festivals of films on art, and has developed contacts in key arts and media institutions across the country and around the world. From 1972 until 1984, Ms. Covert was Executive Director of the Educational Film Library Association (EFLA), where she also functioned as Director of the EFLA-sponsored American Film Festival -- the major documentary competition in the United States at that time. She is the Editor of several directories of film/video, including Architecture on Screen (G.K. Hall, 1994) and Art on Screen (G.K. Hall, 1992), and was supervising editor of the first electronic edition of the Program's database, Art on Screen on CD-ROM (G. K. Hall, 1995).
