Isabel Peña
Nest Jury President

Isabel Peña (Zaragoza, Spain. 1983) graduated in Audiovisual Communication from the University of Navarra and in the Screenplay speciality from the ECAM. Her first work for the cinema was Stockholm (2013), written with Rodrigo Sorogoyen, which earned them the Silver Biznaga for Best New Screenwriter at Malaga Festival. Since then, they have joined forces to write the following films: Que Dios nos perdone (May God Save Us, 2016), Jury Prize for Best Screenplay at San Sebastian Festival; El reino (The Realm, 2018), with which they once again competed in the Official Selection at San Sebastian Festival and for which they won the Goya for Best Original Screenplay; and Madre (Mother, 2019), presented in the Orizzonti section of Venice Festival and nominated for the Best Adapted Screenplay Goya. She is similarly the creator, with Sorogoyen, of the series Antidisturbios (2020), on which she also participated in the executive production, screened out of competition in San Sebastian’s Official Selection. Her next film with Sorogoyen will shoot from this autumn and they are currently working on their upcoming series project. She collaborates as an occasional teacher with film schools such as the ECAM and the ESCAC and with the Master’s Degree in Screenplay at Salamanca University.
