Filmmaker Bio

Maria Servellón is a multimedia artist, filmmaker, educator, and arts advocate from Boston, MA. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art and Japanese from the University of Massachusetts Boston in 2012. For over 5 years, Maria has taught multimedia students and educators alike with an interactive hands-on, minds-on approach in the Boston, Cambridge, and Lynn public schools. Her focus is film and photography, frequently dabbling in digital art, drawing, installation, animation, painting, and design.

A recurring theme in her work is the exploration of relations between art, music, and dance in a synaesthetic-like approach. Along with art, she enjoys singing, dancing, acting, martial arts, and traveling. In 2018, Maria received her Master of Fine Arts degree in Film and Media Art at Emerson College with a focus in directing. Hyphen is Maria's thesis film for the completion of her MFA degree at Emerson College. She has been named one of Boston's "2018 Latinos 30 Under 30" by El Mundo Boston.
