Hey, I'm Marie!

Los Angeles, California

Musician-director Marie Jamora began her career directing music videos during the golden age of the Philippine rock scene. After graduating from Columbia University with an MFA in Film, she returned to Manila to direct commercials and television. She was the showrunner of the first season of Project Runway Philippines and a university professor who mentored a new generation of filmmakers for nearly a decade. Jamora recently immigrated to the U.S. and is now based in Los Angeles.

 

Jamora's stories often explore the rhythms of youth through music. Her first feature What Isn't There premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival and centers on a self-imposed mute who falls in love against the backdrop of the Manila indie rock scene. Her latest film, Flip the Record, is about a teenage girl who teaches herself on the sly how to DJ using her brother's turntables. It won the Grand Jury Awards for Best Narrative Short at Urbanworld and the St. Louis International Film Festival.

 

She is developing Flip The Record as a series and working as executive producer and director of Family Style, an Asian food series with Warner Bros/Stage 13. Jamora was named one of Five Visionary Asian-American Female Filmmakers in Kore Magazine's 'New Hollywood' issue.
