Director Biography - Marianne Amelinckx

When she was a little girl, Marianne was way more interested in watching her family’s homemade movies on their Betamax than than actual cartoon movies. By the time she was 8 years old, she would always grab her dad's handycam to record everyone while they were doing their daily stuff. She would ask them to do things, like a director does. This passion led her to Film School, where she learned about filmmaking and also about herself.

After graduating she moved to Caracas and for the last 4 years, Marianne worked as a Writer for a Television Series and as an Assistant Director in several Venezuela's internationally recognized feature films such as: "La Familia" (Semaine de la critique - Cannes Film Festival 2017), "El Amparo" (Official Selection - Horizontes Latinos Festival de San Sebastián 2016), and "The Night of Two Moons" (in post-production) directed by Miguel Ferrari ('Blue and Not So Pink', Goya Award 2014 Best Latin American Film).

In 2017 she premiered "SALTA" (Dive) at the Tribeca Film Festival, a very sensitive and personal short film, obtaining the Jury’s Mention for the Student Visionary Award. A few days after Tribeca, it also won 'Best Short Film" in the 20 Pink Apple Festival in Switzerland. Nowadays 'SALTA' have been screened in India, Panama, Mexico, Spain, France, Chile, and several states from the USA.
