About us

Through a participative and interdisciplinary praxis, Fragua is always open to coproducing projects and collaborating with creators who are passionate about expanding the limits of audiovisual arts.

With a solid record in production, nationally and internationally, its films have been screened and received awards at festivals such as the Berlinale, Cinema du Réel, Cannes, Morelia and Visions du Réel, among others.
