Eduardo Soto-Falcon is an international and multicultural writer and filmmaker currently based in Kitchener and shaped by diverse North American, Latin and European influences. After growing up immersed in classic Hollywood, Mexican and International cinema, Eduardo graduated top of his class with a Bachelor’s degree in Cinema & Photography, along with a minor in Writing, from Ithaca College (NY, USA).
Eduardo’s short films have screened at 30 film festivals around the world and appeared on TV (including Cinemax, Mexican National TV, and US syndicated cable). An animatic storyboard of one of Eduardo’s scripts was one of 11 semi-finalists competing for a $100,000 USD prize at Amazon Studios. The book “Pop Culture Latin America!” (ABC-Clio) mentions Eduardo alongside Guillermo del Toro for genre filmmaking. During the last few years, Eduardo has concentrated on screenwriting and achieved numerous placements at writing competitions in several countries.
Eduardo sees writing and directing as two halves of the storytelling process, so he writes as a filmmaker and cinephile. Eduardo wants his stories to appeal the intellect and reach for the soul. His particular interest in the fantastic is not to escape reality, but to deconstruct it. The thing that makes fiction as true as reality is emotion. If the writer feels it, if the performer feels it and if the audience feels it, then it’s true.
Eduardo currently develops a few films, audio plays and a documentary web series while launching a production services company for low-budget fiction, documentary and animation films, TV, web series and podcasts, as well as for promotional, corporate, art and culture videography. Eduardo is also available for script doctoring and translation English-Spanish.
