My name is Reynaldo Quijada, I was born in Caracas, Venezuela. From a Galician mother and Caracas father. I am a Film Director, Screenwriter and Producer. I studied Film Direction at ESCAC in Barcelona, Spain and I am also a member of the Galician Audiovisual Academy.
I Have refounded my production company "ReyFilms" in Panama City and I have made short films that have been recognized and premiered in a wide selection of international film festivals, traveling to places like Seoul, Cannes, Lagos, Toronto... My short film "Fuera de Control" became the first film from Panama to be distributed by "Selected Films"; a Goya-winning and Oscar-nominated Spanish distributor.
In addition to short films, during the last 10 years I have worked on advertising projects mainly for the Latin American and European markets and I have been represented as a director by several production companies in both America and Spain
But my passion for cinema is not only for commercial projects. Since 2021 I joined the staff of the Hayah - International Short Film Festival of Panama as curator and programmer of the official selection of the festival and I am currently working on two feature film projects, written by me and developed as co-productions between SPAIN and PANAMA.
I love exploring new techniques and creative expressions that challenge the conventional limits of cinema. 
I am also a plastic artist and by exploring long exposure photography I developed a discourse with which I seek to open an invitation to the imagination that I like to call "La Forma de la Luz". If this makes you curious and you think it's something really cool, enter this link and ride through the imaginary.
Take a look at some of the things Reynaldo has done on this wonderful journey.
