Carina Chavda – WIFVNE Member – Board
Producer, The Grommet
What do you love about your work?
Producing is like putting pieces of a puzzle together to create a truly wonderful work of art. For me, the best part of producing is the weeks of planning finally coming together on set and shooting. I love bringing talented people together to work on a project and see the result of that in the final edit.
What is your vision for yourself, female filmmakers, or the media industry in 2020?
The most important thing for me is finding opportunities that help me grow as a producer. I love putting myself out of my comfort zone and seeing what I can do and how I can push my limits. I am very excited about the future of filmmaking for women, because having spent my entire career surrounded by men in the industry it is such a refreshing change to work alongside talented women and let them bring their perspective to the team.
What’s one way you would suggest people “Change the Lens”?
Support, Hire, Share work from female filmmakers. Join organizations such as WIFVNE to meet and be surrounded by some incredible filmmakers in your area.
What advice would you give to a new female filmmaker?
Find a group of likeminded filmmakers and go out and make something – make anything! It’s the best way to meet people you can work with in the future and network with – it also helps you build a reel of work.
What film or series are looking forward to watching this year? Why?
Handmaid’s Tale – It’s one of my favorite series!
