Oscar Moreno

I'm an optioned bilingual Mexican writer and filmmaker from the U.S./Mexico border. My scripts and short films have placed highly and won awards in festivals and contests around the world such as the Sundance Lab and the Austin Film Festival. My prose work has appeared in the New York Times, Somos en Escrito, Levadura, The Wire's Dream Magazine, The Seattle Star and the Rio Grande Review. I co-wrote the music video for Chiquis and Becky G's cover of Dolly Patron's "Jolene", alongside Julio Abad and Jesús Cazares of Autumn Leave Films. I am working on different projects with various producers, including René Mena of Latinx Productions, and Simon Warne and Luc Bégin of Triality Productions. and I've had my scripts optioned by the likes of Fankle Films and Showdown Productions. My love of storytelling has stemmed from filmmaking and impacted different aspects of my life. I’m mainly focused on writing and making the kinds of gritty and mesmerizing thrillers, horror movies and sci-fi that I’d stay up watching late at night as a teenager. But I also love powerful drama and believe all of these flavors can be combined and provide an exciting experience for audiences. But what I hope for the most is that by telling the stories I’m passionate about, I can bring unique, fresh perspectives to stories about the border. I feel they are necessary now more than ever.
