Laila Petrone

Laila Petrone is an Italian/Dominican filmmaker. Born in the UK, she was raised between Rome and Los Angeles. As a child of an actress, she spent most of her youth on Italian film sets. Laila went on to study International Affairs (John Cabot University) and Media and Communications (University of Florence). In 2007, she appeared as Pina in Spike Lee’s “Miracle at St. Anna”. The experience inspired her to pursue a career behind the camera. In the following years, Laila worked as an assistant director and producer. In 2014, Laila’s directorial debut, “Your Love”, premiered at Urban World Film Festival in NYC. The short was awarded “Best of Festival” at the Black Women Film Network Summit in Atlanta and was selected to screen on Aspire TV as part of the ABFF Independent series’ short films program. She recently completed her second short film, “No me olvidaré de ti”, conceived in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico.
