    Felipe Gálvez

    Chile

    After his film studies, Felipe directed SILENCIO EN LA SALA in 2009, rewarded at BAFICI, and in 2011, Yo de aquí te estoy mirando screened in Rotterdam. His third short, RAPAZ, was selected at the 57th Semaine de la Critique. With this precise, dense and tense film, Felipe throws us in the midst of a news story shot vertically, in the heat of the moment, in the middle of the street. This story is a testimony of the director’s feeling of urgency in denouncing the excesses of our time. Felipe Gálvez presented his feature debut project at Next Step 2018, THE SETTLERS, produced by Don Quijote Films, Rei Cine, Snowglobe and Cinesud. THE SETTLERS was previously developed at Torino Film Lab 2018 where it received the Co-Production Award.
