When Strong Island was nominated for Best Documentary Feature at the Academy Awards, Yance made history as the first openly transgender director nominated for the Oscar.
Yance is a former Series Producer of the PBS documentary series POV. During his tenure, his work garnered 5 Emmy Awards and 16 Emmy nominations.
