Nicolas Calzada is a writer/director of feature films and commercials, as well as writer for American television. He is currently the sole screenwriter for Season 3 of the Fusion Series Drug Wars, in charge of all 16 episodes. He has written the screenplay of two feature films, currently in development; and his short films have screened at film festivals on four continents, including Palm Springs (Jury Prize), and his beloved Miami International Film Festival. Nicolas holds a Bachelor’s Degree in History from Yale and a MFA from NYU’s Graduate Film Program. Lastly, he would like to say that he is not only a fan of the Festival, but also a loyal member…and he’s eternally grateful to the festival because it is where he met his wife, in 2010.
