Marc Levin (born in 1951) is a Jewish American filmmaker who is perhaps best known for his film Slam (1998) which won both the Sundance Film Festival's Dramatic Feature Grand Jury Prize and the Cannes Film Festival's Golden Camera award. Levin was awarded the 1997 DuPont-Columbia Award for CIA: America's Secret Warriors, a three-part series that first aired on the Discovery Channel. He is also the recipient of a 1999 primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Non-Fiction Special. In 1996, his Prisoners of the War on Drugs was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Informational Special. He was also nominated for an Emmy, in 2010, for his role as producer of the documentary series Brick City.
Levin's documentary The Protocols of Zion, which is about resurgent anti-Semitism following the September 11, 2001 attacks, focuses on The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, an anti-Semitic forgery which supposedly describes the Jewish plan for global domination. Although the book has been repeatedly debunked as an obvious forgery, Levin continually discovers various groups presenting it as "proof" for their own anti-Semitic agenda.
He graduated from Wesleyan University in 1973.
