Interview: Producer Carlos Zozaya – Tendaberry

Interview: Producer Carlos Zozaya – Tendaberry

With a resume that began as a Script Supervisor on Anna Rose Holmer’s The Fits and Zachary Shedd’s Americana, leading up to his first main producer credit for Sebastián Silva’s Tyrel, along with a plethora of other projects in between, the 2024 Sundance Film Festival would be an exceptionally memorable one for Carlos Zozaya in terms of spotlighted filmmaker collaborations of both the past and present.

In our conversation, I wanted to get an overview on how Carlos cut his teeth on the American indie scene, the experience of working on Tyrel and we moved into some of the challenges for Haley Elizabeth Anderson’s Tendaberry, and what projects we might find on the horizon. If you are a film geek about the process and appreciate the hustle — this interview is for you.
