Director Biography - Marc Crehuet

Marc Crehuet is a 37 year old spanish writer and director from Barcelona. He’s mainly known there for his two season TV series Pop Ràpid, an acid sitcom with live musical performances of catalan indie bands, which he created, wrote, directed and produced with his independent production company Moiré Films.

He’s also the author of two theater plays: Connections and The One-Eyed King, which was a success in Spain and has been translated to 5 languages. Considering the great reception of the play, Marc decided to write an adaptation to cinema, keeping the same cast that interpreted the play. Although he wanted to be a film director since he was ten years old, life has taken him to work on telling stories in other formats, like television and theatre, and this is his first incursion to cinema. He believes that when you love to tell stories, the way you get to do it is not that important, and he wishes to continue his writing and directing in all the possible fiction formats, but movies are still his most important passion.
