ABOUT FRANCISCO CABRERA - FEO
Francisco Cabrera-Feo is a first-generation Venezuelan-American trying to make his immigrant parents proud. He focuses on "slice of life" character-driven stories with radical explorations of vulnerability and empathy.
At 11 years old, he moved to the United States with his family. His brother got a job at a movie theater and from 11 am to 6 pm he would watch movies back to back... to back. This is how he learned to speak English, but also how he learned he loved movies.
He recently graduated from FSU's College of Motion Picture with a BFA in writing and directing. His latest film, YUNIOR, premiered at HBO’s New York Latino Film Festival, and later at OUTFEST. He was awarded the prestigious "Best Long Form Fiction” Student Emmy by the National Academy of Television & Sciences.
A few years back, his short REVOLVING CHILD screened at the Toronto International Film Festival Vanguard Awards in partnership with AXE, and People Magazine called him "The New Promise of Latino Cinema."
He previously worked at LA REYNA, a joint-venture between Robert Rodriguez (El Mariachi, Alita: Battle Angel) and VICE MEDIA. As Creative Producer he was tasked with developing original serialized projects for New Media Platforms (i.e Facebook Watch, SNAP, and Quibi.)
During the day, he is a Script Coordinator for Netflix's Gentefied.
During the night, he is developing multiple TV projects for production companies.
