Barcelona, 2017


Hola! My name is Soledad and I'm an Argentine-Canadian film producer, based in Toronto.

I collaborate with filmmakers from underrepresented communities to tell stories that amplify the voices of those living on the margins of society. I've covered the European refugee crisis, the inaugural #BeirutPride (first Pride event in the Arab world) as well as life in the slums of Latin America, and continue to produce human-interest stories around the globe. 

My films have played at numerous festivals around the world, including Montreal International Documentary Film Festival (RIDM), Vancouver International Film Festival, Edinburgh Film Festival, MENA Film Festival, and Syndey Short Film Festival. I've also had digital premieres on BoooooomTV and Beyond The Short.
