Director Biography - Amber Puig

I have been a filmmaker since I was 15 years old. Since then I have been an actor, an animator, a photographer, and an artist. My dream is to be a director/producer for documentaries that focus on social change, or the culinary arts. As a female filmmaker my passion is to be as inclusive as possible both in the content I create, the cast of the piece, and the crew in which I work with. I have worked at film festivals at all levels, and currently intern at CNBC with the documentary team. Filmmaking is a way to give a platform to those that are often overlooked. It is also a way to give a break from reality. And I love being in charge of creating those things.

Director Statement

I was lucky enough to go into college knowing exactly what I wanted to do. Many of those I was graduating high school with had no idea what career path was right for them. I thought that once I got into college, everyone was going to be going to school for what they loved, like me. But I realized quickly that that was not the case. No one I knew was doing exactly what they wanted to do. I heard over and over, “In a perfect world I would have love to go to school for [BLANK]”. Or, “My parents told me that I should go to school for this”. “Maybe when I have a steady career I can finally focus on what I’ve always wanted to do”. And it broke my heart every time someone said “You’re so lucky that you get to go to school for something that you’re passionate about”. So I wanted to make this film as an ode to those that aren’t chasing their passions, that it’s okay, because there’s still time to do what you love. But make peace with the fact that it’s your passion and stop ignoring it, face it head on. Sometimes, all you need is to believe in yourself, regardless whether anyone else has your back.
