Alexandra Santiago-Georget

I’m a Puerto Rican filmmaker currently in pursuit of my Master’s degree at the University of Miami, graduating in 2019. I always had a passion for storytelling, which led me to pursue my first degree in Journalism from the University of Puerto Rico. Upon finishing my Bachelor’s, I realized film and the visual medium was how I wanted to tell and share these stories. Since I started my MFA, I’ve worked on award-winning short films and showcased at film festivals, shot for feature documentaries, created content for the MDC Museum of Art and Design and the Perez Art Museum, collaborated with some amazing artists and taught my own class. I’m excited to keep working within the medium, sharing and showcasing often overlooked stories that can create a lasting impact within a community.
