Best Mobile Phone Feature Film: Grand Winner 2022
Thank you Miguel for your beautiful, compelling film. Please share with your audience how you became a filmmaker. And, what can you tell us of your first experience in filmmaking?
I came to filmmaking through writing. I thought I was going to be a novelist first, but I always wrote with music and visually imagined everything I was writing, so it was a natural transition to screenwriting. After attending NYU's MFA program in Creative Writing, I moved to LA to pursue film full-time. I started directing my own short films to protect the writing.
