Fran Casillas is a director & cinematographer born and raised in the island of Puerto Rico. During his youth, he was awarded the gold medal for ‘Best Cinematography’ at the national college film Olympics Cine Campus. Before pursuing his MFA in Film & Television Directing at DePaul University, his cinematic endeavors over the last decade had led him to numerous collaborations with Puerto Rican directors, and to ultimately become co-founder and member of the film collective Producciones Tabaquero. His visual aesthetic has been core of films such as "Esta Isla" (2014), "Enganche" (2015), and "Anacrusa" (2021), among others. While Casillas BASc studies in Philosophy and Existentialism certainly cast shades of surrealism on his body of work, presently he’s working on infusing Caribbean perspectives into new proposals, while challenging the contemporary and historical narrative standards that have tinted Puerto Rican folklore.
