biography

Emilia Fort (1988), currently based in Madrid, has a Degree in Audio-visual Communication from Universitat Pompeu Fabra, in Barcelona. There, she quickly became interested in producing and, in her early twenties, she began working on the music video and advertising industry. In 2015, she started a multidisciplinary company as an executive producer, focused on working for artists and agencies worldwide. Just four years later, she decided to change course and to devote herself exclusively to her passion: cinema.

In 2019, she joins Avalon, one of the most innovative independent media groups in Spain. She was head of production for Libertad, Clara Roquet’s first feature, world premiered at La Semaine de la Critique at Cannes Film Festival 2021, as well as for What went wrong? by Liliana Torres, internationally premiered at Tallin’s Black Nights Film Festival in the same year.

Currently, she works as a delegate producer for Matria, Álvaro Gago’s debut film that is now in post-production; as well as for Creatura, by Elena Martín Gimeno, which is going to be shot this summer; amongst others.

Emilia is the delegate producer of Alcarràs, Carla Simón’s successful second feature film - which participated in TFL ScriptLab in 2018 - and which has been awarded with the Golden Bear for Best Film at the Berlinale 2022.

Iván & Hadoum, Ian de la Rosa’s debut after his fruitful short film & scriptwriting career, is her newest project as an executive producer, and is in its early development stage. This is a very special project for her: it is a challenge in her career both for the production scheme itself and for the topics the film deals with – from which she is continuously learning and hopes to continue doing so.
