TRIBECA FESTIVAL 2023 – MAESTRA – Interview with Filmmaker Maggie Contreras

The 2023 Tribeca Festival begins this Wednesday June 7th and runs through Sunday June 18th.  Our Gadi Elkon got to chat with numerous filmmakers about their world premieres at the festival this year.  Here is our interview with MAESTRA’s filmmaker Maggie Contreras.

Maestra is a new feature documentary following five internationally-based women as they prepare for and perform in ‘La Maestra’—the only competition in the world for female orchestra conductors. Personal stories of survival, passion and perseverance are woven together with the drama and excitement of this one-of-a-kind event created to break yet another glass ceiling for women.

Maggie Contreras makes her directorial debut with MAESTRA.  The documentary is having it’s World Premiere as part of Tribeca’s Documentary Competition.  Maggie and Gadi talked about hearing from Tribeca, the unique ties to Dallas Texas and the Harts and their institute for women conductors.  Here is our interview with filmmaker Maggie Contreras.
