Iris Mansour

Teaches at Made in NY Media Center by IFP

Iris Mansour has interviewed Presidents, Oscar winners, Dolly Parton impersonators and 10 year-old entrepreneurs for Fortune, Reuters TV, Mashable, Quartz, The Guardian and Time Out.

She started her career in the relentless field of TV News. Covering elections, hostage takings and everything in between. She learnt to interview virtually anyone about anything at a moment’s notice, including: Hamid Karzai, Condoleezza Rice, Pedro Almodovar, and Monica Bellucci. 

As she transitioned to features and documentaries, she came into contact with people who had never found themselves in the spotlight; young adults with cancer, teens with eating disorders and people experiencing homelessness. She needed to adapt her interviewing techniques to tell a very different kind of story.

Over the years, she’s developed interview techniques that cover the most complicated scenarios. She’s excited to share them with you.
