Born in Montevideo, Uruguay in 1990. Federico made his first short films at the age of 15 as he began writing poetry and fiction more regularly. He wrote three feature films in English in the years 2009-2010, two of which were semifinalists in screenplay contests, then took up writing features again in 2016, when he finished the 60-minute "Long Verse of the Night". He has studied English-Spanish literary translation and classical piano. Lately, his short "Wanderer" (2017) was a finalist in the Ryuichi Sakamoto | async International short film competition and was screened on May 31 at the 2019 Nippon Connection festival in Frankfurt, while the sci-fi action satire "Unwelcome" (2017) was announced a finalist in the 12th Annual StoryPros International Screenplay Contest and a semi-finalist in ScreenCraft's 2018 Action / Thriller Competition, garnering further recognition since then. His latest short film, "Rehearsal", was part of last year’s Cannes Short Film Corner and has been selected in various other film festivals. He's currently preparing a feature film where he lives, one of three new feature screenplays written during 2019-2020. He has also completed two Sundance Co//ab courses: “Directing Actors” and "TV: Writing" levels 1 & 2, the last of which included the writing of a pilot script.
