Inefable was created in 2015 by three young professionals. We develop projects for cinema, for TV and for the Web. We should like our projects to have a creative stamp and to develop social,  cultural  or artistic issues from a critical and constructive point of view. Our projects have been presented in very important film festivals such as Cannes, Rotterdam, Mar del Plata, Guadalajara, Havana, SANFIC and FICValdivia.
