Dani Sanchez Lopez is a European filmmaker who lives and works in between USA and India.

His narratives as a cinematographer dare to walk (and cross) the thin line of contemporary independent filmmaking at the edge of the industries of India or America with movies like the blockbuster yet classic film Mahanati (The Great Actress), or San75, a political thriller about the emergency, or Miseducation of Bindu, a dramedy about sexual bullying in high school executively produced by the Duplass Brothers.

His documentary features also penetrate deep into the local culture and the global discourse. To name a few of the topics: queer identity versus faith, arranged marriage through a female perspective, or the impact of Sufi music as a country’s culture identity. @buddhistandqueer marks his documentary directorial debut.

He is also a commercial Director-DOP. His latest work includes Highway Star for T-Series, Calcutta Kiss for Detective Byomkesh Bakshi for Yash Raj Films, or Aik Tha Badsha for Noori.

Dani has also served as cinematography professor in several institutions around the world, like the prestigious FTII (Film and Television Institute of India), NYFA in the USA, Sanjan Institute in Lahore, la Escuela de Cine de la Universidad de Cádiz in Spain and for several international film festivals.

Dani’s education has encompassed many countries and cultures. He has studied Film and Visual Arts in Spain, the United Kingdom, New York and California. He received several scholarships to study abroad, including a La Caixa Fellowship, receiving an MA in Film at Cornell University and an MFA in cinematography at Chapman University.

Dani is also a visual artist that works in the photography and videoart realm. His exhibitions rituals, River of Ashes, or Projections populate gallery and museum spaces of India, USA and Europe.
