Colombian visual artist Camila Saldarriaga has spent her life living between Bogota, Miami, and Los Angeles. Given her strong connection to her South American heritage, each location has served as inspiration to experiment, strengthened her unique style, and stirred her fascination with using atmospheric tones to tell stories. Camila’s work reflects the importance of a female voice that embraces diversity and social issues.
She has a B.A. in Communications from Florida International University with a minor in Photography and Art. She is currently enrolled in UCLA Extension courses and working toward a Directing certificate.
Camila’s work has been published in London with Noctis Magazine, Bogotá with Revista Exclama and New York with Milk Magazine, among others. Her experience in photography and wardrobe styling has nurtured a passion for filmmaking, propelling her toward production and directing. Her first self-directed-and-produced short film, ¡Mais Duro!, was officially selected to eleven film festivals during the festival circuit and won Best Narrativa Short at Nordic International Film Festival in 2016, also getting a Special Mention at Province ToWn Film Festival.
