My name is Ana Falcon
I'm a PhD Virtual Reality student, Marketing Strategist, and Filmmaker
I'm a Mexican VR PhD student with experience in digital marketing and screenwriting.
I won twice the Nuevo Leon Short Film Script Contest (Mexico, 2011/ 2014), and placed 3rd place and Honorable Mention in Atzavares Short Story Contest (Spain, 2009). In 2019, I was a screenwriting finalist in the Watersprite International Student Film Festival hosted by the University of Cambridge for my master short film "Tomorrow Island".
I was selected for the 2008 Fusion Arts Exchange in Screenwriting and Film Production hosted by the University of Southern California and the US State Department. In 2017, I was distinguished with a Young Creators FONCA grant from the Mexican Culture Ministry.
In 2016 I received an Erasmus Mundus scholarship to participate in the Kino Eyes European Cinema Master programme. My graduation thesis "Digital Marketing Strategies for Next Generation Cinema" was published in the International Journal of Film and Media Studies. In 2021, I was selected to Berlinale Talents.
I am currently a PhD candidate at the Estonian Academy of Music and Theater, where I research screenwriting formats for Cinematic Virtual Reality.
