Filmmaker in Residence
Mary Mazzio, an award-winning documentary film director, Olympian, and former law firm partner, is Babson’s filmmaker in residence. She consults with the Babson community to create visual media, and partners with College Marketing on key initiatives, including highlighting alumni as Entrepreneurs of All Kinds. She first connected with Babson when the College hired her company, 50 Eggs Films, to create Lemonade Stories, a look at the relationships between successful entrepreneurs and their mothers. Mazzio is founder and CEO of 50 Eggs Inc., an independent film production company, dedicated to creating films having social impact.
She wrote, directed, and produced the highly acclaimed, award-winning films, TEN9EIGHT, A Hero for Daisy, Lemonade Stories, Apple Pie, and Contrarian, as well as We Are BlackRock. She recently completed The Apple Pushers, narrated by Academy Award nominee Edward Norton, and funded by the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund, which was picked up for distribution by Oscilloscope—and most recently, Underwater Dreams, which was called “the most politically significant documentary film since Waiting for Superman” (Jonathan Alter, The Daily Beast). The film, narrated by Michael Pena, and funded by the Bezos Family Foundation, the Laurie M. Tisch Illumination Fund, and others, attracted an extraordinary amount of media attention, including an appearance on The Colbert Report.
