Actress/Writer/Director Paola Mendoza on the next Double Down Film Show!

On the next Double Down Film Show this Weds. May 5th - 9pm, we’ll close out our 3rd season with an uplifting interview with Paola Mendoza the triple threat actress/writer/director of the new indie film, Entre Nos. Winner of multiple film festival awards, Entre Nos is a timely and personal drama about the hot-button issue of immigration based on the true story of Paola’s own mother.

Recently named one of the 25 New Faces of Independent Film by Filmmaker magazine, Paola began as an actress and crossed over into filmmaking with the award-winning documentary, Autumn’s Eyes, before writing, directing and starring in Entre Nos. The film was co-written/co-directed and edited by Gloria La Morte who also edited Autumn's Eyes.

  • How did she shoot a feature with 2 child leads in only 18 days?
  • What’s the most important thing she does as a director every night?
  • How did they find convincing non-actors as her child leads?
  • What perils of tapeless shooting did the crew overcome?
  • How can you get a community involved with your film?

...All will be revealed on the next Double Down Film Show with our special guest, Paola Mendoza. Paola’s new film Entre Nos will be opening in New York on May 14th and appearing on HBO later in the Fall.

We’re taking the summer hiatus to get our own filmmaking jones on, but will be back this fall with Season #3 and more practical wisdom and advice for filmmakers! Join us for the big season finale this Weds. May 5th!
