Fiorella’s latest film “MAL DE AMORES '' (2023) has screened in over 18 film festivals worldwide including Academy Awards-qualifying Hollyshorts. The semi-autobiographical short film, a proof of concept for an LGBTQ+ TV series based on Fiorella’s own life experiences, was awarded the Cycle III Grant from the Peregrine Collective, which helped move the project into production. Fiorella was selected as a participant of the 2022 Hola Mexico Film Festival’s Tomorrow’s Filmmakers Today program, sponsored by Warner Bros. Discovery & HFPA. The film was also awarded the Inside Out RE:Focus Fund.
Fiorella was recently chosen to be a participant for the AWD #MentorLatinaDirectors Initiative 2023-2024 Cycle. In 2020, Fiorella was chosen to join the Women in Film mentee program as a writer/director.
Fiorella has studied at several prominent acting schools in Los Angeles, and attended UCLA’s screenwriting extension program. As a queer and genderfluid filmmaker, her writing and directing work embraces deeply personal LGBTQ+, Latine, and women empowerment themes while aiming to tell heartfelt and unapologetic stories.
Fiorella is currently developing Mal de Amores into a TV series and writing her second feature film.
