“Meira Blaustein is a force of nature; dynamic, dedicated, endlessly resourceful and upbeat. A woman of verve and vision, she’s a natural born ‘connector’ between filmmakers, filmgoers and great films. Meira combines taste and passion with down-to-earth pragmatism and expertise. A pleasure to work with, she accomplishes ambitious goals with grace and dexterity. I feel very lucky to have Meira as a colleague, collaborator and friend.”
