Camila Chaves Rojas, Shorts Programmer, deadCenter Film Festival
Although originally from Bogotá, Colombia, Camila Chaves Rojas sees herself as an Okie at heart. She is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma, where she earned a BA in Film and Media Studies. She considers her time in college among up-and-coming Oklahoma filmmakers and a trip to the Berlin Film Festival as the catalysts to get involved with deadCenter.
After a brief stint as a volunteer screener, Camila was able to move up and come on board as a Guest Short Film Programmer for deadCenter’s festival season. She is honored and excited to promote and discover emerging filmmakers from her community and hopes to become an advocate for diversity and representation in independent filmmaking. Plus, it has always been her dream to sit around and tell people what to watch. Some of her favorite films are Perfect Blue, The Royal Tenenbaums, and Cleo from 5 to 7.
