Proyecto X Films

Lois PatiñoMaría Cañas (Seville, 1972)

“Virgin Terrorist of Archives, arsonist of minds and videopath, audiovisual, wild and mediatic iconoclast…”, is how she defines herself in her biography, María Cañas practices a videoguerrilla that she introduces into the topics and genres to make them explode.  Her façade is “laughing presence”: humour in all shades and the actions of the masses connected like an insurgence strategy or, at least, spiritual survival. She directs Animalario TV Producciones, a creative space devoted to the recycling culture, artistic appropriationism and experimentation. A staunch supporter of non-privatisation and the liberalisation of our historic and imaginary memory and an activist committed to archives as the tool for cultural development. She has exhibited her work at national and international festivals, fairs, events, art centres, museums and galleries and has won numerous awards. 

Lois PatiñoPilar Monsell (Córdoba, 1979)

Filmmaker and editor. Her first film, Distancias (Distances) won the Audience Award at the 49th Festival dei Popoli in 2008 (Florence). In 2012, she made the short film Pan, Trabajo y Libertad (Bread, Work and Freedom), which was premiered at Doc Lisboa and she worked on the 100jours collective French film project, making + 46. Her first feature film, Africa 815, won the Distribution Award at the Festival Márgenes 2014, Best Documentary at the Zinegoak Festival in Bilbao, Platja D'Aro Panorama Award at L’Alternativa Independent Film Festival in Barcelona and a Special Jury Mention at CEMEDOC in Mexico, as well as passing through many international festivals, such as the Cinema du Réel, Doc Lisboa, Los Angeles Women's International Film Festival, "The Limits of our Gaze" in New York, etc. In 2014, she co-founded the Laboratorio Reversible group in Barcelona, devoted to creation and experimentation in analogue film. In 2016, she produced the photographic and analogue film exhibition project, Cuidadoras de patios: lo íntimo-público as part of the development of what will be her next feature film: Nisaiyat. She is currently working on the post-production of her short film, Dos sueños después (Two Dreams Later). 

Lois PatiñoOmar A. Razzak (Madrid, 1982) 

The Canarian director of Syrian origin trained in Madrid, Paris and Montreal, works in film and enjoys it from several of its sides. Sometimes he produces films (Stockholm, 2014, Rodrigo Sorogoyen) and sometimes he edits them (La Selva Inflada (The Inflated Jungle), 2015, Alejandro Naranjo). Paradise was the first film he directed and it was followed by La Tempestad Calmada (The Calm Tempest), which were both well received by critics and the public.
