  • Leo has ample experience both as a film writer and as a filmmaker, and has directed two short films.
  • In 2015, he became the youngest-ever winner of an award at the renowned Bluecat Screenplay Competition.
  • He has seen every film on the 2012 and 2022 editions of the Sight & Sound Top 250 list.


Leo has been passionate about films and TV from a very young age. He began trying his hand at reviews and longform articles as early as when he was 12 years old, and has written for a multitude of blogs and sites over the years. His passion for classic cinema led him to develop a deep familiarity with films from all eras and various corners of the world, and to keep up to speed on everything that goes on in the social media film-o-sphere. In addition to that, he has also accrued firsthand experience with the craft of filmmaking by working in a variety of fields in film school, writing and directing chiefly among them.


Leo is currently pursuing a bachelor's degree in Film at FAAP - Fundação Armando Álvares Penteado, located in São Paulo, Brazil.
