First-generation American Tara Motamedi grew up in Iran. She was raised in a liberal Azeri-Kurdish household and speaks three languages. Wishing to pursue a film career, Tara moved to the U.S., where she earned a BA in film production and an MFA in screenwriting.

Having a multicultural background has allowed Tara to recognize differences but, more importantly, similarities between people around the world. Her work consists of strong character-driven narratives that allow her to connect with audiences beyond the visual execution.

In our latest episode of Long Story Short, Tara talks to us about detail-oriented filmmaking, choosing projects that align with her personal career goals, and how to use a platform to make a positive impact. .
