MiFILM FILMSGIVING: Help support Jennifer Gonzales' short film "RENACER"
MEET JENNIFER GONZALES MARTINEZ
This year, we're hosting our annual Filmsgiving a little differently. We're inviting you to join us in supporting, and helping fund, projects from emerging filmmakers in the MiFILM community! Let's show out for the team 💪🏾.An island girl with big dreams...Jenniffer (she/her/hers), was born and raised in "La Isla del Encanto," Puerto Rico, and migrated to the United States in 2018 after graduating from Universidad del Sagrado Corazón in Puerto Rico. While there, she majored in film production with a minor in acting, writing, and directing. She directed “Se Quitó," a short film narrating her story regarding the horrendous 2017 hurricane Maria.
After graduating, she worked with an HIV organization, directing a short documentary film about the injustices people with HIV go through after being diagnosed. In Fall 2020, she became an MFA Candidate in the School of Cinematic Arts (Film & TV Production) at the University of Southern California. While at USC, she has had the opportunity to collaborate on many short films. She also wrote and directed "IT Happens," a short film about human trafficking. Later, in the Summer of 2021, she co-wrote "Of Reasons and Rumors," a heartfelt narrative short film collaborating with Vaccine LA, an organization targeting the Hispanic Community, to confront and combat the COVID-vaccine misinformation. "Of Reasons and Rumors" is promoted by the National Hispanic Alliance for Health to its 15 million members.
Jenniffer Gonzalez Martinez has concentrated on narrative filmmaking, focusing on the female experience. She is currently in pre-production for her graduate thesis film “Renacer,” about the stigma of abortion, based on her life's story.
