Michelle Salcedo was named Best New Filmmaker of the Year in 2020 by New Filmmakers LA. With over 20 years experience in the entertainment industry, Michelle strives for authenticity, drawing from her Latinx experience and achieves a nuanced representation of the Latin American diaspora in her storytelling. Her filmmaking style is highly cinematic, influenced by auteurs like Kieslowski and Iñarritu. Born in Miami, of Cuban and Ecuadorian descent, she moved to New York to attend Columbia University and graduated with a B.A. in film studies. Her directorial debut, "Piel Canela/Cinnamon Skin" shot on location in Cuba, started its festival run in 2019, winning seven jury prizes including “Best Produced” at the Academy-qualifying Holly Shorts Film festival and an audience award at the Chicago Latino Film Fest. She wrote and directed the feature, "Woman of the House", a female-centric dramedy which premiered at the Laemmle as part of NoHo Cinefest October 2021 and was nominated for “Best Actress”. “Woman of the House” was a semi-finalist at Academy-qualifying Flickers’ Rhode Island International Film Festival, won the audience choice award at the Mystic Film Festival, and a jury award, “Best Ensemble Cast” at the Silver State Film Fest in 2021. By creating compelling, character-driven work in TV and Film, Michelle hopes to empower future generations of filmmakers to express their unique visions.
