33rd Valencia Film Festival

So happy and proud to be part of the 33rd Valencia International Film Festival Cinemajove with my series The Elevator to be among the only twelve Official Selections from all around the world.

Last time I was in this city, I was 24 and I was a student in Universidad Politécnica de Valencia. As an art student living in Valencia, I know first hand how big and important this festival is, and I have always dreamed to be a part of it. I am beyond excited. What an honor!

My first take is, Festival is happening all around the city and it’s big! You can feel the magnitude when you literally can not walk anywhere without seeing a huge billboards promoting the festival. Also the selection of web series is very exclusive and a program with only twelve series makes the festival much more intimate and exclusive.

Opening Ceremony was huge and the screenings were great. It really never stops to amaze me how good some stories truly are and I am so glad for these festivals to let them get recognized. In the Questions and Answer section of my screening I have received this perfect question about my series: “ I have watched your show and it’s brilliant, congrats! I only have one question…Are you crazy?“. I think, right there, that was easily the highlight of the festival for me.

The Elevator did not receive an award but overall being selected to the final twelve among 300 or more series was an award in itself. Moreover being part of 33rd Valencia International Film Festival and revisiting the city that I have so many good memories about was phenomenal.

So thank you the director Maria Albinana, thank you @cinemajove and thank you the city of Valencia. You’ve been always very kind to me!
