A little story

About Us

Who we are

The solution you need

Festimania Pictures is an award-winning audio-visual studio set up in 2011 by Pedro Peira as a solution for creating, producing and distributing original content.

What we do

A need of sharing stories

Initially, the company started functioning as a Brand Placement and Content Sales Agency, focused on creating and developing product placement and branded content actions for Spanish broadcasters, developing customized, brand driven content in an efficient, cost effective manner, and representing nationally and internationally third-party programs and formats worldwide.

In 2013, we felt we needed to share some stories with the world in order to make some change and we step into production with the social documentary feature Música Maestros. about how music improves the quality of life of people with different pathologies.

This movie became the cornerstone of our production arm.

In 2016 part of our team moved to California, where we opened a production office in Los Angeles in order to start shooting our film LA Queenciañera and several awarded shorts like (Latin)American dream, Españomics, Veterana or Trabajadores.

In 2017, we premiere the feature film Soul at the Berlin International Film Festival. The movie, shot in Spain, Japan and France, gets wide distribution on Netflix and at major world territories as well as some critical acclaim.

During those years, we start covering events such as music and film festivals both in California and Spain for news agencies and broadcasters.

After attending the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, we begin an approach to extended realities as we think they are the present and early future. We provide consulting and curatorial services for industries that range from education to entertainment, pointing our clients to the best providers and resources.

To be continued...

Never stop creating

Back in Spain in 2020, in order to consolidate our culinary editorial line, we produce the film Free Way and premiere it at the San Sebastian Film Festival. This film will be released by Netflix.

To continue with our social issue production, in 2021, we premiere LA Queenciañera at Outfest Los Angeles, the world’s biggest LGBTQ+ festival, and release it in México theatrically.
