Global Shaper, Leon Hub,

Anna is a screenwriter, film producer, and director 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.

Since last year, Anna is an active 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. In 2018, she sold her first comedy feature script, co-written with Paola Mazlum, which will begin production next fall. Their second feature film is currently in negotiations. They are currently developing for a TV show and prepping their directorial debut as a duo.

As a Global Shaper, Anna is interested in making a city that has no demand for any kind of art form, appreciative of what it brings to society as a whole.
