You have a chance as a diversity play and one with a unique background, but they are likely not going to view a film major as a rigorous academic preparation. Your GMAT is good, which should help in this regard. Another thing working against you is your applicant pool. Applications from China have skyrocketed in the past 2 years, so the diversity play may be more challenging than if you were from Tanzania or Argentina, for example. HBS loves to see leadership and innovation. you have the innovation story with your creative film play, but make sure you emphasize leadership. Directing a film is a great story of leadership and a film crew is one of the most complex team driven organisms in existance....work that angle, tell the story and reel them in.
