Anne Buford

Anne Buford, a born-and-bred Kansan living in New York City, developed, directed and produced ELEVATE, the award-winning, feature-length documentary film that follows a group of young Senegalese basketball players who receive scholarships to American prep schools to pursue their educations and NBA dreams

In 2005, after an extensive career in magazines, sports, fashion, website development, and politics, Buford, believing in the transformational effect of film, founded her production company Sharp 7 and began shooting her debut film ELEVATE.

ESPN Films has acquired ELEVATE and will air the film in 2012.
