About Rafel

I am a filmmaker and freelance journalist based in Berlin and Barcelona, with Bachelor´s degrees in audiovisual communication and journalism from Pompeu Fabra University of Barcelona.

After starting my professional career in Barcelona in production in film and advertising, I later moved to Miami in 2004 where I continued working in production for major Spanish media company Grupo Prisa affiliate Plural Entertainment, which produces content for Univision -the largest Spanish-language network in the United States-, Telemundo and WSBS-Mega TV. There I also worked as assistant editor and editor for docu-realities, magazines and show games. As freelancer, I also produced the independent documentary La Gata-The nine lives of a tango singer (Best US Documentary Award in the Women’s International Film Festival, Miami, USA, 2008).

In Buenos Aires, I worked in postproduction for magazines, documentaries and reports produced for different TV channels and for the Argentinian Ministry of Information. I collaborated with an international human rights NGO in a conflict zone in Colombia, contributing to the communications department.

I directed, produced and edited the short documentary Cyborg Foundation, which won the Grand Jury Prize in the Focusforwardfilms Competition, about world-changing innovation, awarded at Sundance 2013. The jury included actress Daryl Hannah and filmmakers Barbara Kopple, Jose Padilha, Joe Berlinger, Floyd Webb and Peter Wintonick. The film premiered at Sundace Film Festival alongside shorts by Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me), Alex Gibney (Taxi to the Dark Side), Lucy Walker (Wasteland) and Albert Maysles (Grey Gardens). It also screened at Tribeca Film Festival and Doxa Documentary Film Festival in 2013.

I was involved in the postproduction of the feature film White Shadow, directed by Noaz Deshe, to be released on 2013 and premiered at Venice International Film Critics Week this year. I actually freelance as a TV reporter and filmmaker.
