Claudia Cifuentes is an American screenwriter, film director and producer of Guatemalan descent. 

She began her career in film assisting Hollywood heavyweights such as Anthony Katagas, Lynda Obst and Michael Mann. 

She wrote and directed the indie feature film After the Wedding, starring Nick Puga and Edy Ganem. The film was shot for $40k in Miami Beach, with funds raised successfully with her two sisters on Kickstarter.

After the Wedding has since gone on to screen at various high-profile film festivals including the Bahamas International Film Festival, the Big Apple Film Festival and the Bushwick Film Festival. The film is now available on Amazon and iTunes.

Her next feature film, The Untitled Sisters Project, is being produced by her production company, Pink Forest Films, and will begin filming in Argentina in 2021. 

A graduate of NYU's Film & TV Program, and a member of the Film Fatales, she resides in Tribeca with her husband and two young sons.
