Valerio Mendoza Guillén


I’m a filmmaker from Venezuela based in Prague. I came to Czech Republic in 2009 to study at FAMU, now I teach there.

Before I came to Prague, I lived and worked in Caracas doing documentaries connected to history and culture.

My fiction and non-fiction films have been shown in around 50 International Film Festivals and have collected various awards.

If I’m not preparing a new project, I’m  teaching film and audiovisual narrative in collaboration with FAMU, elementary schools or human rights/democracy NGOs in Czech Republic.

Back in old Univeristy days, my friends started to call me “valzio”, I guess in classic Venezuelan habit of shortening names.
