Alonso Alvarez Barreda
Alonso Alvarez Barreda was born in Mexico City and raised in the Mexican town Tampico, Tamaulipas. He attended the Universidad Autónoma de Tamaulipas for International Commerce but after 2 years decided to pursue his lifelong dream of filmmaking. Through his mother, he met director Alejandro Monteverde (Bella). Monteverde became his friend and mentor encouraging Alvarez to shoot his first short film. Written, produced and directed by Alvarez, “El Agodonero” was his first attempt. Recognizing his talent, Monteverde urged Alvarez to shoot another. Alvarez’s second short “Historia de un Letrero” won the highly coveted Best Short Film Award in the Short Film Corner at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival.

Shot entirely in Tampico without a budget, ‘Historia” has been awarded with the Best Short Film Award in the Festival International de Cine en Corto, the Hispano-American Jury Award in the Short Shorts Film Festival in Mexico City and has been Official Selection in countless film festivals. “Historia” has circulated in more than 200 internet blogs gaining international acclaim and was named one of the most inspirational films by internet users.

Alvarez’s latest short The Finding penned with actor Julio César Cedillo is his first foray in film. Shot in 16mm, “The Finding” stars Julio César Cedillo (The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada) and Mexican star Alejandro Felipe Flores (Innocent Voices).
