Afioco Gnecco


Director and filmmaker from Italo-Chile. He is an explorer of any kind of artistic expression in the audiovisual medium. After attending film school, his interest led him to delve into disciplines such as photography, video art, “vijing” or directing actors.

As a non-binary trans person, in 2016 he began his audiovisual activism with the NGO Apoyo Positivo, making diversity and vulnerable people within the LGTBI+ collective visible.

In 2017, together with Apoyo Positivo, he created the series INDETECTABLES, a fiction series whose plot helps to make the problem of HIV visible in our society.
