About

Born in Spain, raised in Luxembourg and studied in the UK, Arantxa moved to Sweden on a bicycle trip from Spain in 2008, where she has been freelancing ever since as a filmmaker and photographer. In 2019 she founded the film collective Sprouting Pictures where she has produced, directed, edited several shortfilms and won awards at an international level. Since finishing her film studies in London, UK, Arantxa has worked on several international feature films, documentaries and tv series, mainly as a camera operator, but also learning from other departments, which makes her a jack of all trades.
