Maru Buendia-Senties, winner of the Cary Grant Film Award by the Princess Grace Foundation (2007), obtained her MFA in Film Production at the University of Texas at Austin in December 2008, and  worked for 3 years at Troublemaker Studios in the VFX Department. Her award-winning films showcase her writing and directing as she creates stories that portray deep interpersonal connections and unique idiosyncrasies that connect us all as humans.

“Film is my art, the best way for me to share my thoughts, fears, dreams, and ideas. To freely express myself and see the audience get in touch with my work makes me the artist that I am. Filmmaking is demanding, bringing with it intense trials and tribulations, but the rewards can be just as powerful. I have been fortunate enough to experience both extremes and each trial only strengthens my passion for film.”
