Director Biography - Martin G Castaneda

Martín Gustavo Castañeda Yábar has recently received a Royal Reel 2016 Award at the Canada International Film Festival for his first feature length screenplay "Written by Victors". His film "Box won" Best Experimental Film at the 2015 Oregon International Film Awards.

His first attempt at screenwriting back in 2002 was a novel adaptation. This failed but enriching experience pushed him to obsessively read every screenwriting book that he ran into and to seek formal education as a writer/filmmaker. Since then he has written and directed several short films, as well as corporate and advertisement videos in Lima, Peru - his hometown.

Martin is a Peruvian/US citizen with a Bachelor of Science in Communication Studies from the University of Lima. He also has experience as an actor, TV junior screenwriter, copywriter of print and radio ads, documentarian for USAID, and running his own creative boutique. He moved to Vermont in 2014 and this May he’ll receive his MFA in Film from Vermont College of Fine Arts. His thesis short film "Joan in Owl Land" will soon be released.
