Sophia Castuera is a filmmaker and actor based in New York. She left her Southern California home to attend Boston University’s Film & Television program. She’s worked with companies such as Sony Pictures Animation and Film Independent. These opportunities allowed her to gain experience in creating, writing, developing, and producing stories she’s passionate about. With this set of skills, she moved to New York to pursue a career in independent film and theatre. She created her short film ‘VOCE,’ wrote a feature-length screenplay that earned her a spot as a Semifinalist in the WeScreenplay Diverse Voices contest, graduated from Terry Knickerbocker Studio’s Two-Year Conservatory in 2021, and performed at Columbia University and Mabou Mines. With her experience in writing and acting, Sophia is highly focused on the performances of her actors, particularly on the details and nuances of the connections between two people — what is said, and what is unsaid. In the future, Sophia hopes to tell more stories about underrepresented communities, and she especially hopes to tell stories that explore her Mexican heritage.
