Owen Galicia is a Guatemalan/Spanish/Polish writer, producer, and director from North Hollywood, CA, whose family roots and rich culture inspire his style and passion for writing and filmmaking.
A highly ambitious emerging filmmaker, for two years during high school, Mr. Galicia worked with the nonprofit organization Rotary International, a community service organization meant to help local communities, where he served as Event Coordinator.
While attending Film2Future in 2020, Mr. Galicia produced, organized, and oversaw the art department for the student short film, One Son. His time working and learning under industry professionals, producers, writers, and other fellow filmmakers provided Owen with the tools and knowledge to continue moving forward in his professional career.
