Randy Valdes


I aim to craft films that challenge and inspire audiences to be introspective and philosophical about their own lives. A film, like any work of art, should aim to provoke thought and promote a deeper understanding of the human quality. My background as a Director of Photography is an essential part of my work as a Director, using cinematography to cultivate an atmosphere in my films that is powerful and purposeful.

I’ve been fortunate to premiere work at The Sheffield International Documentary Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, and SXSW FilmFest, and been screened at Hot Docs – Film and Music Series, ScreenDance Miami Festival, and won best documentary in XicanIndie FilmFest. Most recently, my first short film was acquired by HBO for national distribution and I’m currently in the post-production phase of my most important project, Petra.

Making films is my obsession.
Photography I do for exploration.
And the rest is just fun.
