Marcello Mitnik

by 2 September 26, 2015

Marcelo grew up and attended film school in Cordoba, Argentina. After producing and directing commercials and music videos, he moved to the U.S. to study at UCLA's School of Theater, Film, and Television, where he received his Master's degree in screenwriting. Marcelo, whose work includes the screenplay for Pretending—a remake of a South American film of the same name—and the script for the European/Canadian project Dreamland, is currently preparing what will be his feature film debut as a director. He is also working both as producer and writer of a number of remake projects of South American films, including the English-language remake of 2009's Berlin Film Festival winner Gigante. His work as a writer, both in English and Spanish, has been recognized with a British Academy of Film and Television (BAFTA/ LA) Fellowship and a Sloan Film Award, among others. His work as a director includes the short film En las nubes (In the Clouds), which has been selected for over forty film festivals and has been recognized with multiple awards worldwide. Marcelo’s photographic work has also won recognition, most recently First Prize in the Visions of LA competition, with a jury that included cinematographer Dante Spinotti (LA Confidential, The Insider).
