About me
Gsus Lopez (Zamora, Spain, 1986) is a writer-director based between London (UK) and Spain, with a passion for stories that represent the people and experiences in the LGBTQ+ community. Since graduating from his UAL BA in Media in 2014, he has been selected as a member of the BFI Network x BAFTA Crew (2018-21), and Berlinale Talents (2015). Gsus has directed a few award-winning short films, fashion films and music videos, with his crowd-funded short OUT screening at over 50 film festivals worldwide, then premiering online on FOTOGRAMAS (2019) and being included in the FILMIN catalogue. Gsus is currently in preproduction of a new short film titled NAILS with Polari, a Manchester-based Production Company. Amongst other projects, he's also developing the script for his debut feature film HISTORIA DE MADRUGADA (Story at Dawn), a queer drama set in Madrid. The project was selected for the 5th Pitchbox Madrid by Filmmarket Hub, and featured on Variety during the 71st Cannes Film Festival (2018). He also participated in a 5-week long Advanced Script Development Workshop at the EICTV in Cuba (2019).
