Colleen Cambier – WIFVNE
What do you love about your work?
Getting to connect with people from all walks of life and the challenge of finding the best tell someone’s story.
What is your vision for yourself, female filmmakers, or the media industry in 2020?
My vision is to expand the role of women in media, no matter the job title. For myself, I have the vision of completing my first major film, all shot and edited by me, to educate others about cochlear implants and the Deaf community.
What’s one way you would suggest people “Change the Lens”?
If possible, create a team or collaborate with other women. I recently finished a series of videos with an all-female crew, which was a new experience. We came together as women, and worked tirelessly to create more heartfelt work and supported one another every step of the way.
What advice would you give to a new female filmmaker?
Be strong and be open!
Which women in the New England region inspire you?
JoAnn Cox and Alecia Jean Orsini Lebeda! When I was trying to find a job in Boston and messaged WIFVNE’s Facebook and Alecia messaged me immediately, trying to help me and within two days I met with JoAnn who graciously gave me contacts and advice upon meeting her! I am so grateful for these women!
What film or series are looking forward to watching this year? Why?
Maybe not a specific film or series, but I am looking forward to more documentaries coming out! I am so excited to learn more about this world we live in.
