Miguel Flatow is a Mexican-American writer/director. Born and raised in rural Mexico, at age 17 he traveled to the United States to attend Kenyon College on a full academic scholarship. Upon graduating, he headed to Chiapas, Mexico, where he worked as a columnist for El Cuarto Poder, the largest state newspaper, writing a weekly periodical on culture and arts, eventually becoming head of the Arts and Entertainment Division. Shortly after he served as advisor and speechwriter to the Secretary of State, the youngest ever to occupy the position. During this time, he was selected as a Master’s Candidate for New York University’s MFA program in Creative Writing. After a year at NYU, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue writing and directing full time. In 2021 he wrote, directed, produced, and edited his first feature film VA POR DIEGO (FOR DIEGO), which he shot on an iPhone for $70,000. It would debut at the Morelia Film Festival, go to Dublin FF where Adam McKay (Vice; Don't Look Up) introduced the film in person, and win the 2022 Grand Winner for Best Mobile Film Feature at the Cannes World Film Festival. Feel Content acquired the film for worldwide sales. On the TV side, Miguel recently sold his first TV Pilot to a Hollywood Studio into development with Rachel Shane (Hell or High Water; Genius; The Eyes of Tammy Fay) producing.
