PABLO VELIZ: In 2006, Véliz graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio with a degree in Communication. His participation at SAY Sí, an after school visual and media arts program, led him to a pursuit for the arts. At age 22, Véliz wrote, directed, produced, and edited his first feature film, La Tragedia de Macario, which was selected in the 2006 Sundance Film Festival and several other prestigious festivals. The award winning film is based on the worst immigrant tragedy in the history of America. Today, Veliz is recognized as the most promising director from San Antonio and as a leader in the community of cinema bringing jobs for both cast and crew with a constant and impressive production of feature films. All of Veliz's films have US and international distribution.
