Mynah Films was founded in 2008 by Florencia Manóvil, an Argentine, Oakland-based writer/director passionate about independent filmmaking, as well as environmentalism and social justice.
Born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Florencia moved to the U.S. to study film at Emerson College in Boston. She eventually made her way over to the San Francisco Bay Area - a haven for artists, activists and queers alike - where she decided to lay roots.
A multilingual translator and subtitler, Nutrition Educator, writer, feminist and mother, Florencia is committed to bringing her underrepresented communities to the screen, as well as showcasing Oakland and the rest of the Bay Area.
Fiona’s Script was Florencia's feature directorial debut. She is now immersed in the development of Dyke Central, a “dyke series” set in Oakland, while seeking funding for her second feature, Star-Crossed.
