INMA DE REYES
I am a filmmaker born in Spain, based in Scotland, where I graduated in Film Directing at the Edinburgh College of Art. My debut documentary short “To Be a Torero” premiered in Sheffield Doc/Fest in 2018. She is currently working on my first feature film with Aconite Productions, 'Castillos de Arena', in an international co-production with Rustic Canyon (USA), awarded by Chicken & Egg Pictures. I have pitched my films at BFI London, DocsBarcelona and Edinburgh Pitch, and developed it with the deadlines of dok.incubator.
My first TV director credit aired in August at BBC Scotland with Isabel’s Independence, a 30-minute documentary about a Spanish immigrant in Edinburgh. In 2018, I was selected to join Interaction in Serbia, where I directed 'Osamdeset Dinara', after which I was selected at Bridging the Gap to direct 'Vivir Bailando', produced by Noe Mendelle at Scottish Documentary Institute, a short film that premiered at EIFF 2019.
As a filmmaker, I also work freelancing for organisations or individuals across Scotland, filming, directing and editing, as well as working at Media Education- a community enterprise in Edinburgh, and I teach part time at Edinburgh College of Art.
