Born in San Sebastian in 1965, Pablo Malo wrote and directed the video shorts Tres minutos and Nora, the latter of which was awarded Second Prize by the Basque Department of Youth, before making his first work for the cinema, El ángel de mármol, winner of First Prize at the 18th San Roque International Short Film Festival (Cádiz).

Following the screenplays Tártalo el Cíclope and Anje, la leyenda del Pirineo, earning a Goya nomination for best animation film in 2002, he wrote and directed his latest short film to date, Jardines deshabitados, garnering thirteen awards at the over sixty national and international festivals in which it has participated since its release at the Gijón International Film Festival.

In 2003 he made a big-screen version of Frío sol de invierno, starring Unax Ugalde, Marisa Paredes and Javier Pereira, among others. Produced by Luis Goya (Zine 1), this film was selected for the Zabaltegi-New Directors section at the 52nd San Sebastian International Film Festival. It has won 15 prizes since its release, including the Goya for Best New Director in 2005 and a nomination for Best Editing, in addition to nominations by the Actors Union for the actresses Raquel Pérez and Marta Etura.

In 2006, once again with the Basque production company Zine 1, he shot the thriller La sombra de nadie, with José Luis García-Pérez and Philippine Leroy-Beaulieu. He is currently producing his latest screenplay, Las huellas del agua, a social drama about an increasingly more individualistic society.
