I am Celia Galán, writer and director based in Barcelona. I studied Animation at the Royal College of Art in London. My graduation film DESERT STORY won the Second Prize at the Cannes Film Festival Cinéfondation. I moved to Berlin as an Artist in Residence from the DAAD and then to Paris invited by the Cinéfondation Residence of the Cannes Film Festival. I came back to Barcelona where I co-founded the production company CELOFÁN.
In the world of fiction I have written and directed short films and feature film projects which have been selected and won awards at main festivals worldwide such as Cannes, Sundance, Los Ángeles, Palm Springs, Edinburgh, Sitges or Malaga.
As a director of commercials I have worked for brands such as Vogue, Canary Islands, Font Vella, Desigual, Banc Sabadell, Audi or Nivea; and with agencies such as VMLY&R, BBDO, Ogilvy, Havas or Double You. My advertisement pieces have won awards at the Laus, AMPE and John Caples.
