Director, AD, Production Assistant
Ivan Marte, born in Paterson, NJ, is an aspiring filmmaker with a passion for narratives that have historically been untold. Ivan seeks to highlight the rich tapestry of stories found in abundance within communities of color, especially amongst the Queer and Trans population of such communities.
The force that pushes Ivan is the desire to truly understand the beauty found within the art of visual storytelling, and the power that it gives to those who see themselves in the stories being told. Ivan can usually be found writing down film titles on his (admittedly long) "need to watch" list, hunting for his next learning opportunity, or engaging in long conversations about the Star Wars mythos.
Above all Ivan seeks to continue to grow as a filmmaker, hoping to create meaningful stories that showcase the rich narratives hidden among the hearts and minds of the marginalized.
