Mexican Revolution: Fernanda de la Peza

LOS CABOS, Mexico — This year’s Los Cabos Festival couldn’t have gone much better for editor-producer Fernanda de la Peza. Two films she is producing participated in the Works in Development section, Amat Escalante’s “Estado del Imperio” and Joaquín del Paso’s “The Hole in the Fence,” the former winning the CTT Exp & Rentals post-production award and the later the CTT Exp & Rentals + Chemistry Award, one of the competitions weightiest prizes.

De la Peza started her career as an assistant director, but is best known for her work in editing. In fact, she won an Mexican Academy Ariel for editing on Amat Escalante’s Venice competition winner “The Untamed.”

While her workload as a producer has increased, she has no intentions of cutting back on editing. “I really love the combination of these two jobs,” she told Variety. “I think editing gives me a particular vision towards production, so it’s a great combination and I want to keep doing both.”

Whether it be editing or producing, de la Peza knows what she’s looking for in a film she wants to work on.
