Carlos  Alejandro  Marulanda  is an award-winning writer-director based out of San Francisco California.  Born in Colombia, he made his way to California to dive head first into the world of filmmaking. His work focuses on narratives that follow characters on the edges of the reality, dipping into the realms of the surreal and science fiction. He is fascinated by the power of images, the bold use of color and expressionistic sound design.

Carlos is a graduate of UCLA’s Screenwriting Program and has an MFA from SFSU in Directing and Cinematography.  His feature screenplay “Cancuncito” won the Advanced Screenplay Award at UCLA, was awarded 2nd Place in the feature section of the Slamdance Screenplay Competition and was selected as a finalist in the American Zoetrope Screenplay Contest. His feature length screenplay “Skin” was awarded the Nate Wilson Joie de Vivre Award at UCLA.  His short films have been screened at festivals around the world and on national television.   Always looking for bigger and better things, Carlos is currently in production of 2 short films and is developing his 5th feature length screenplay.
