Born and raised in Peru, Julio O. Ramos left his journalist studies in his country and moved to the United States to pursue filmmaking. In 2012, he obtained an MFA in Film Directing from the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television.
His student body of work includes short films, The Shoe Shiner (2010), A Doctor’s Job (2011) and Behind the Mirrors (2012). Together, they screened in over three hundred film festivals around the world and picked up multiple awards, including top student prizes at the DGA in 2010 and 2012, BAFTA in 2012 and EMMY™ in 2012; and a Best of the Fest award at the 2012 Palm Springs Shortfest. A Doctor’s Job and Behind the Mirrors were his first films produced in his homeland and were also awarded by the Ministry of Culture of Peru in 2012 and 2013 respectively.
Julio was selected to participate in the Berlinale Talents Program at the Buenos Aires and Berlin Film Festivals in 2013 and 2014 respectively. His first feature film script, Mayflower, participated in the Sundance-sponsored Latino Screenwriting Project in 2014. His most recent short film, Debris, premiered at the 2017 Telluride Film Festival and is currently in the festival circuit.
Julio works as full-time faculty at the New York Film Academy in Los Angeles while developing several feature length projects.
