Shaandiin Tome, Diné, is a filmmaker from Albuquerque, New Mexico. Recently, Shaadine graduated cum laude from the University of New Mexico with a BFA in Film and Digital Media Production and hopes to continue her career as a filmmaker. She is a 2016 Sundance Full Circle Fellowship alumna and Programming Intern. In May 2017, she was selected for the Sundance Native Filmmaker’s Lab Fellowship. Currently, she aims to bring resonating imagery in convergence with story, illustrating her perspective as a Diné woman. Her short film Mud(Hashtl"ishnii) premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. Shaandiin’s Native Hope Fellowship provides her with an opportunity to develop and incubate a narrative film about a young man’s quest for validation between him and his biological mother. The film has deep meaning for Shaandiin as it is based on her father’s story.
