Dina Fiasconaro Recommends

What film do you think everyone should watch?
The Piano by Jane Campion

What’s your favorite part about living and working in the DC/MD/VA region?
I love how small, supportive and diverse the Baltimore filmmaking community is. Rather than being competitive, I appreciate how collaborative and uplifting we are with one another.

Who inspires you?
Female filmmakers, writers and musicians. Artist parents. My grandmothers. My daughter.

What story do you wish someone would tell?
In general, more diverse Baltimore stories that defy the ingrained stereotypes of the city; disability, indigenous, drug/addict and 40+ narratives that also defy stereotypes.

What’s your favorite place to celebrate success with your crew?
Atomic Books/Eightbar. I appreciate their support of Baltimore women filmmakers!

To celebrate WIFV’s 40th Anniversary, we reached out to the community to nominate the colleagues they admire. We are honored to have these filmmakers in our community as mediamakers, advocates, and mentors.Di
