Barcelona, 2017


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 Sydney Short Film Festival. I've also had digital premieres on BooooooomTV and Beyond The Short. 

I am currently the Senior Marketing Manager at curated film streaming platform, production company and film distributor MUBI, in charge of leading the marketing strategy and priorities for Canada.
