Federico gets things done and quickly. He arranged for us to get the rights for important music tracks for our film. He is diplomatic yet firm in his negotiations. Hire him if you are working on a film in Buenos Aires and need a producer on the ground. He is fabulous.

I taught Federico Spoliansky at London Film School for a period of two years. During that time I observed him to be a dedicated student who worked very hard and displayed an obvious enthusiasm for everything he did. I have no reason to suppose him to be any different today – it is a privilege and pleasure to know him.

I have been working with Federico on multiple film projects. I am encouraging all organisations, companies and commissioners to invite him for their projects as Federico is among the very few professionals who has a strong understanding and the essential skills to bring commercially aware productions combined with creative solution.
