Louie Schwartzberg is a renowned filmmaker, and director of the Award-Winning documentary Fantastic Fungi narrated by Brie Larson, which is featured on Netflix and rated 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. Louie has spent his notable career providing breathtaking imagery using time-lapse, high-speed, and macro cinematography techniques. He is a visual artist who breaks barriers, connects with audiences, and tells stories that celebrate life and reveal the mysteries and wisdom of nature, people, and places.
In Louie’s new film, Gratitude Revealed, he takes the viewer on a transformational cinematic experience of how to live a more meaningful life full of gratitude. In Fantastic Fungi, Louie explored the magic of the natural world beneath our feet; in Gratitude Revealed he takes that wisdom above ground, and journeys into the soul to celebrate the human spirit. Through his intimate conversations with everyday people, thought leaders, and personalities, gratitude is revealed as a proven pathway
back from the disconnection we feel in our lives.
On April 20, 2023, Louie is launching The Louie Channel, a streaming channel dedicated to inspiring mindfulness that will feature all of Louie’s work, as well as an audience engagement platform for live events and conversations.
Louie‘s three TED talks have over 65 million combined views. He was Oprah Winfrey’s guest on Super Soul Sunday, and his Gratitude Revealed programs premiered on the OWN online platform.

Louie has received various awards including Captain Planet, Superhero for the Earth Award, a National Medal for Garden Club of America, The Semel Healthy Campus Initiative (HCI) Eudaimonia Award for Mental Wellness, and an Award from Maui Film Festival for Fantastic Fungi.

For Louie, the greatest satisfaction is creating works that inspire audiences to celebrate life and protect what we love.
