Félix Piñuela

His first notion of the world was in the neighbourhood of Ventas and the banks of the River Guadarrama.

His educational years (or call them X) were spent between Madrid and La Habana.

For the time being, his qualifications are: Graduate in Information Sciences from the Complutense University of Madrid, and qualified as producer and scriptwriter from the Official Institute of Radio and Television and the International Film and Television School in San Antonio de los Baños, Cuba.

He began his professional career as a photographer for a travel agency. In this way, he travelled all over Europe and lived alongside tourists. One of them, the only one that wasn’t singing on the bus, says to him: “You are still very young and you can’t enjoy or understand what you see properly”.
The years go by. He has directed short films and documentaries in Spain and Latin America. He joined forces with Paco Mateo to write Así se hizo Sansón, which won the Julio Alejandro Award for Best Feature Film Script, from the Fundación Autor.

He has directed Versión Española, on TVE, the first television programme to win the Medal for Merit in Fine Arts awarded by the Ministry of Culture.

Now, he is not so young and although he still does not understand, he tries to enjoy what he sees.
