Professional Experience/Clients

Maximiliano is Uruguayan/Italian filmmaker and photographer, primarily working in experimental documentary. His practice is aimed at conjecture rather than generating knowledge, for which he resorts to hybrid practices that favor imagination, uncertainty, and subjective experiences. His approach to image-making is layered and polycentric, allowing poetically intertwined realities to emerge.

His video work has been selected for film festivals such as the Beijing Indie Short Film Festival (2022), Cambodia International Film Festival (2022), Guelph Dance Festival Screen Dance Series (2023), Motion State Film Festival in Rhode Island (2023), and Dance Made in Canada Festival (2023).
