Francisco MeCe (1988, Bogota, Colombia) is a visual artist, cinematographer and an emerging filmmaker based in Berlin, Germany. His work covers diverse fields of the audiovisual arts scene, developing pieces together with musicians, choreographers, filmmakers and both visual and sound artists.
He collaborated as cinematographer and assistant editor on the film It All Started at the End directed by the iconic Colombian filmmaker Luis Ospina; other collaborations have been featured at international festivals such as Rotterdam IFF, CPH:DOX, Guanajuato IFF, Moskau IFF or Vancouver IFF, among others. His first feature road film Wanderer shot in Iran was premiered in early 2020, while completing his studies in cinematography at the Deutsche Film und Fernsehakademie Berlin (DFFB) with the short film The Song of the Chrysalis.
Francisco's most recent collaborations as cinematographer, the feature film Risse im Fundament -an intimate portrait of a young woman struggling in a male-dominated professional landscape- directed by Genia Leis and Gerald Sommerauer, and Sirens -the odyssey-inspired experimental short film of Ilaria di Carlo entirely shot from helicopters around power plants in Germany- are currently in post-production.
