    Dominga Sotomayor

    Chile

    I am interested in working with stories that are close to me; making fiction grow out of the empty spaces of my memory as a way to complete it.

    Dominga Sotomayor was born in Santiago de Chile in 1985. She directed the short films CESSNA (2005); NOVIEMBRE (2007); DEBAJO (2007); LA MONTAÑA (2008) and VIDEOJUEGO (2009), which have taken part in and received awards at several international film festivals. Her first feature film, DE JUEVES A DOMINGO, was developed at Cannes’ Cinéfondation Résidence, received Hubert Bals Fund script and development support and premiered at the 2012 International Film Festival Rotterdam, where it won the Hivos Tiger Award, before going on to win awards at IndieLisboa (Best Film); New Horizons (Gran Prix Best Film); Valdivia Film Festival (Best Film) and many others. The film has been released in countries worldwide. Her second feature-film project, TARDE PARA MORIR JOVEN, participated in the Binger Filmlab and Jerusalem International Film Lab programmes and received support from the Sundance Institute and the Hubert Bals Fund. Sotomayor has also participated in exhibitions in Santiago de Chile and London (Tate Modern) with video pieces and installations. LOS BARCOS (2016) was selected at IFF Rotterdam and IndieLisboa.
