Born and raised in Barcelona, Felix Fernandez de Castro has spent half of his lifetime working in advertising. First as a creative for more than a decade, writing his own stories, then shooting stories written by others for an even longer period of time. As a director, he has worked for clients such as Audi, BMW, Nike, Coca-cola, Seat, Ikea, etc.

On either side of the camera, his work has been aknowledged in almost every advertising festival in the world, from Cannes to El Sol, including One Show, New York, Euro Best, Epica, and many others.

In addition to his work in advertising, in 2010 he directed the documentary Maria and I, finalist in the Goya awards, and in the Official Selection of festivals like San Sebastian, London BFI, Thessaloniki, Pu-San, and winner of the best Opera Prima in the REC and Alcine festivals.

In 2013 he directed the short film “Zebra”, also in the official selection of many national and international film festivals.

But what probably describes Felix Fernandez de Castro most accurately is  his talent for telling stories. Standing in a bar or sitting at a desk, working  on a script or a film (it´s all the same to him), it´s what he really enjoys doing and what he´s good at.
