Pau Cordero

Founder & Festival Director

Pau Cordero, Sound Engineer, Image Capture and Treatment Technician and Graphic Designer, worked for the first time at a film festival at the Münchner Filmwerkstatt Short Film Fest in 2013 as a DIT and directed the festival’s promo.

The exploration of dissident sexualities, combined with his audiovisual experience, led him to Vienna to discover the PFF family in 2022.

Since then, he has taken his works “Freedom X” and “Postbulimika” to festivals in Warsaw, Athens, Rome, and back to Vienna, while searching to answer a very simple question without words: When will PFF come to Barcelona?
