Hey, I'm Dina!

Baltimore, Maryland

I am a Baltimore screenwriter and film director, recently named a finalist for the 2018 Baker Artist Award. My feature documentary, Moms and Meds: Navigating Pregnancy and Psychiatric Medication, is available on Amazon, and my short film, Commercial for the Queen of Meatloaf, was funded by the Saul Zaentz Innovation Fund in Film and Media at Johns Hopkins University and has screened at close to 20 festivals. I recently completed a feature adaptation of Terence Hannum’s novella Beneath the Remains which I'm slated to direct in summer 2019, and an original feature narrative script Days in the Wake as a resident at Dorland Mountain Arts Colony in California and Stowe Story Labs fellow in Vermont. My short films have screened at a variety of venues and film festivals, including the Baltimore Museum of Art, and I am a recipient of the ‘Generation Next’ screenwriting grant for my feature script, Beyond the Pale. I have an MFA in film directing from Columbia University, and a BS in TV, Radio and Film from Syracuse University. I am the co-founder and chapter leader of Baltimore Film Fatales, a national organization working towards gender parity in the film industry.
