Gatoencerrado Films is a production company founded in 2007. Since then it has worked in advertisment, documentary films, animation projects and fiction shortfilms.

From the beginning we have worked in projects that surpass the boundaries of narrative and technology incorporating animation principles with live-action filmmaking and worldbuilding as part of the creative process behind each and every one of our projects.

Our films have been showcased in major festivals worldwide. The Colombian Film Fund has granted us several grants for our feature and shortfilm projects.
