Maria Cantu

JTWO added Maria Cantu as a new Director. A former graduate of JTWO’s [INC]ubator Project, Maria is also an Emmy Nominee and an Addy “Best of Show” Winner. She brings with her an uncanny ability to weave together intricate stories across genres.

Maria came to us from Temple University in 2018. After obtaining a Media Studies and Production degree and seeing the beautiful work she brought to JTWO during her internship, it was an easy decision to bring her on full time as one of our Directors. Her Directorial debut for “Barre None” recently won Best Documentary in Bucks Fever Filmfest and took home 2 Gold ADDY Awards for Best of Show and Best Cinematography under the student category, along with Best Student Documentary at the 2019 Louix Awards.
