Mia Maramara is a Filipino filmmaker with work that has screened both locally and internationally. Her passion for authentic, trailblazing stories has led her to wear different hats in the industry, most notably as a writer and director.

She most recently wrote and directed Beyond the Veil: Albularyo for TV2, which earned her the distinction of being the first Filipino director to helm a prime-time drama on New Zealand TV. In 2021, she won SPADA New Filmmaker of the Year. Her animated documentary, Only Human, has amassed over 350k views online.

Mia recently wrote for anthology feature film Kāinga, the third film in the trilogy of Waru and Vai, which has gone on to screen at NZIFF, MIFF, and HIFF. Her feature film Grafted, co-written with Hweiling Ow and funded by the NZFC, was recently picked up by UK-based sales agent Mister Smith Entertainment.
