About Melina

Melina Valdez is a New York-based Uruguayan filmmaker focusing on surreal perspectives, stories about identity and complicated relationships. Raised predominantly in swampy South Florida, she drew inspiration from every source of art possible - books music, painting nothing was off-limits. Melina is always looking to work on films that challenge the status quo and keep independent cinema alive.

She is current in post-production for her upcoming short film Weapons and Their Names, a proof-of-concept for a feature film that was selected for IFP Week 2020.
