SeriesLab Participant 2017


Patricia Gomez Zlatar was born in Chile, eventually settling in Montreal by way of Pennsylvania. After graduating from Concordia University in Biology, she co-wrote and produced her first feature “Graveyard Alive – A Zombie Nurse in Love”. Since its premiere, the film has screened extensively in festivals, garnering numerous awards, as well as being picked up for distribution and international sales. Despite her love of film, Patricia decided to continue down the academic path and graduated with a Master’s in Ecology from the University of Florida. After a few years as a scientist, she opted for a career change and returned to Montreal to form Head on the Door Productions, a company dedicated to creating innovative films in the horror, fantasy and arthouse genre. Since then, Patricia has produced her second feature “Go in the Wilderness” and the festival favorite short “Never Tear Us Apart”. She is currently producing several projects, including the shorts “Les Élus”, scheduled to be released in early 2017, and “Maiden Mother Crone” to be lensed in winter 2017.
