Marie Cantin is a Producer and Educator, having worked in independent and studio film and television productions. She was an Associate Dean at the AFI Conservatory, and in 2017 was the recipient of the Frank Capra Achievement Award from the DGA – a very big deal. Some of her many credits include, Torch Song Trilogy, Save the Last Dance, Dante’s Peak, and Things to do in Denver When You’re Dead.
We talked about her long and circuitous journey into the business. At one point she was rumored to be a nun. There’s a story.
She says it is important to figure out who you are and how you want to be in the world. This will inform your path. I think she’s right.
