Meet the Filmmaker: Eddie Portoghese, “Francine”

Q: Why did you become a filmmaker?

EP: Since I was young I have had an affinity for film and always wanted to be part of the movie magic.

Q: What are we going to see at the EFP? Has it screened elsewhere and what are your plans for it?

Q: What else are you working on?

EP: I am stunt coordinating a few upcoming projects for others

Q: Tell us one weird thing about you and/or your movies?

EP: I typically start each of my films with a quote!
