Diego Sardi was born and raised in a rural region of Uruguay. While completing his Bachelor in Communications at the University of Montevideo, his passion became developing stories and having them come to life in films. Producing films: his calling. He received a Fulbright scholarship for his graduate studies in film producing in the US. In 2016 he obtained his MFA in Creative Producing at Columbia College Chicago.
After Grad School, he moved to Los Angeles, CA, where he worked at the Development and Production department of local and regional production companies, and where he also interned for the International Feature Film Program of the Sundance Institute. He has produced narrative fiction films and documentaries that received national and international awards. Some of his most recent works are a documentary co-produced with a South African production company and micro documentaries for UNICEF and the United Nations.
As a filmmaker, he believes that the most impactful revolutions begin inside the individual. He is interested in telling stories that ignite the fire that lives within each person and inspiring them to believe in themselves, in the people who surround them, and in the transcendence of the life.
