Teresa is an award-winning Rust Belt-raised Maltese American documentary filmmaker who hails from the story capitals of Detroit, MI and Buffalo, NY and is currently based in Westchester NY. Inspired by the communities she calls home, Teresa's documentary work focuses on women and the interpersonal dynamics of communities and relationships, particularly within families.
A 2018-2019 Bronx Documentary Center film fellow, Teresa screened two short films, each from the perspectives of two parent-poets as they navigate their relationship, co-parenting, and their art. Her most recent film, "I'll Find a Way or Make One — A Rosie Story" debuted at the Buffalo International Film Festival in 2022, where her film won "Best Western New York Short Film". Since then, "I'll Find a Way or Make One" has gone on to win several more awards, including "Best Women's Short" at the Independent Short Awards International Film Festival and "Best US Documentary Short" at the International Manhattan Film Awards.
