Vincent Cortez Mitchell Street Pictures
Writer | Director | Producer | Editor | Composer
Vincent Cortez is an Oakland CA based filmmaker who became passionate about storytelling in his youth and developed his craft as he grew. After graduating from SFSU’s Cinema Program, he launched his own company, Mitchell Street Pictures, where he focused on directing content that is diverse and compelling. His short films have been distributed internationally on both big and small screens, including his short film “Dad” which was picked up by PBS and “Darkness of Night” which premiered on El Rey Network. Besides his work directing, Vincent has also functioned as a writer, producer, editor and composer on various projects.
Focusing on universal themes, Vincent has created high-concept/low-budget films that blend and cross genres, with character and story at the forefront. His desire to tell inclusive stories that represent people-of-color and women authentically stem from his Latino culture and his background growing up in a multi-cultural community. In addition to narrative films, Vincent has worked on corporate and commercial projects with clients ranging from Google to Samsung.
Vincent will be screening a short work in progress “The Lost” and give a talk about his process, plus Q and A.
