Anna Grajales

Outgoing Curator, Leon Hub,

Anna is a screenwriter and film producer addicted to coffee and passionate about telling stories that are worth telling. Born in Mexico City but raised in Houston, Texas, Anna acquired a vision for universal storytelling. Her productions and stories have screened in film festivals in Mexico, USA, Canada, Spain, and Italy. She has a bachelor’s degree in Business Marketing and Mass Media Communications from Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education.
In 2017, she received the Distinction of the Cinematographic Merit by the government of the state of Guanajuato for her achievement in filmmaking and was listed as one of the "30 Emerging Writers" by the Oaxaca Film Fest, popularly known as "the Sundance of Latin America". Her latest production, "Just Remain" is currently available to stream on Amazon Prime. In 2020, Anna was part of the Development and Content team of Fábrica de Cine, the production company founded by Gastón Pavlovich, producer of "The Irishman" and "Silence" by Martin Scorsese.
She has flourished as a screenwriter, always working alongside her writing partner, Paola Mazlum. Both have focused their careers on building stories with a youthful and fresh perspective. Their first feature script, “Nada de esto fue un error” (to be filmed this year) is produced by Cinema 226 and Videocine, the largest film distributor in Mexico. The duo completed the Spanish-language adaptation of a feature-length comedy for Alazraki Entertainment in 2019. Their second original feature script, “Culpable…. ¿O no?”, is currently in development and was selected as one of 5 projects in Filmarket Pitchbox’s Mex Comedy Showcase. This project will be a co-production with Sony Pictures International.
The script of their directorial debut, “Noche de Graduación”, was selected in the first Access Lab of Particular Crowd in conjunction with the Guadalajara International Film Festival.
Currently, they are developing their first original comedy series, “Guía para Salir de la Friendzone”, together with 3PAS, a production company founded by Eugenio Derbez and Ben Odell. As well, they are writing their second project for Fábula, the production company founded by Oscar-nominated director Pablo Larrain. The duo is set to develop an adaptation for Wattpad Studios, the company behind After, The Kissing Booth, and many more teen sensations. They are also part of the writing team for a Netflix youth series produced by Draco Films.

Anna is currently repped by World Talent House, the first Agency specialized in representing the Latin American Creative Team behind the camera.

Anna is a member of the Mexican chapter of the Women in Film & Television organization and has become an advocate for a fair and just representation of women in front and behind the camera. As well, she is part of TINTA, the first association of Mexican screenwriters.
