Born and raised in Colombia, Julio Ramírez-Ramos began his film career as a teenager assisting the producers of Oedipus Mayor, an international co-production written by Gabriel García Marquez. He earned a combined graduate degree in Social Communications, Journalism, Advertising, PR and Marketing at Pontifical Javeriana University in Bogotá, and the European Institute of Design & Communications in Milan and Rome. He completed a thesis/internship with Italian Filmaker’s Magazine (Bunkerlab) and the Turin Film Festival, creating a campaign for film students across Italy that earned him the highest thesis score of his class. Ramírez studied acting at Freehold Laboratory in Seattle and attended acting courses in Bogotá and Rome. He attended the Hands On Filmmaking program at the Seattle Film Institute, and the screenwriting program at TheFilmSchool under the mentorship of Stewart Stern and Tom Skerritt. He has produced/directed several shorts in Super 16, Super 8, and digital. His feature film Nothing Against Life won recognition for its artistry and suicide prevention campaign, winning the Unicef Special Jury Award at the 2013 edition of the former San Marino Int. Film Festival, and the HERO Award by Washington State’s Youth Suicide Prevention Program in 2014. Through his agency, Paradigma Creative, Ramírez has supported the work of up-and-coming filmmakers, non-profit organizations, and human rights campaigns. He is currently developing his first feature film in Spanish, El Eterno Susurro De Las Calles (The Eternal Whisper Of The Streets).
