Maria Casas Castillo

Mexican filmmaker and visual artist.

People say that she’s a ‘closet biologist’ because she loves science and grew up around biologists, even though she studied art. She graduated from the Docnomads Joint Masters and The University of Manchester. This fascination for nature took her to direct her first short film ´COMO VER A NOITE´ in 2022 (Sheffield Docfest), and ´THE WHALES I DON´T SEE BUT ARE OUT THERE´ in 2023 (International Documentary and Short Film Festival of Kerala). She currently lives in Brussels where she makes films as an excuse to look for hidden worlds and the creatures who inhabit them.
