Eve A. Ma, PRODUCER-DIRECTOR
Eve A. Ma, like many other independent filmmakers, is primarily self-taught. She first became interested in film/video when, in an earlier career, she found herself producing a television interview series for a cultural non-profit she directed. After leaving the non-profit, she decided to continue working in media.
Starting off as a producer/director of public access work, over the years she has honed her skills so
that now, her productions are accepted into international festivals all over the world, and aired over
major national educational channels. As she puts it,
I learn by making mistakes - and because I've made so many, I've learned a lot!
A hallmark of Ma's work is its engagement with other cultures. She has traveled to more than 20 countries, and has produced work in Spain and Peru, as well as the USA. Ma speaks Spanish, French and a little Mandarin as well as English, and many of her productions are in both Spanish and English.
