Variety - October 2017

"In an honor that combines artistic and female achievement, The High Falls Film Festival will present DP Nancy Schreiber with its Susan B. Anthony 'Failure is Impossible' Award in recognition of her contributions to the art of filmmaking as one of the few female cinematographers working today in film and television."

HuffPost - February 2017

"To this day, Schreiber still meets people who have never worked with a woman cinematographer."

Film Independent - February 2017

"When I was starting off in New York as a film electrician and gaffer with aspirations to be a cinematographer, I would devour every issue of American Cinematographer magazine that was published. It never occurred to me that I could become a member."

Variety - January 2017

"As the fourth female member in ASC’s history, out of only 15 total... Nancy Schreiber, ASC has forged a singular path in the industry — not just with talent and persistence, but also visibility and a willingness to take on positions of responsibility."

Cultress - January 2017

"In fact, because the ASC has previously only bestowed one of its many awards unto a woman a single time in its three-decade-long history, Schreiber was shocked to even receive the call."

HDVideoPro - January 2017

"Over three decades, the American Society of Cinematographers has given its coveted Presidents Award to a long list of distinguished artists... never has the honor gone to a woman — until this year. At the 31st annual ASC Awards, DP Nancy Schreiber will take home the trophy. Indeed, Schreiber will become only the second woman to receive any ASC prize at all."

Selected Reviews

The Hollywood Reporter - "Fugly"

"Alfredo De Villa, who worked with Leguizamo on Nothing Like the Holidays, directs the unwieldy mix with energy, and the accomplished director of photography Nancy Schreiber gives the New York locations a low-key freshness. The sporadic use of animation by Bill Plympton is more whimsical-decorative than edgy."

The Hollywood Reporter - "It's A Disaster"

"This movie makes the most of it's single location, thanks to the fluent camerawork of accomplished cinematographer, Nancy Schreiber."

Los Angeles Times - "Every Day"

"This movie makes the most of it's single location, thanks to the fluent camerawork of accomplished cinematographer, Nancy Schreiber."

Variety - "Girl in the Cadillac"

“Her impressive long shots convey the vastness of the land...and her sensuous camera contributes immensely to the pic's sexual allure.”
