Dedicated to the world of screenwriting since 1990, Jorge has participated in some of the key films in the last few decades of Spanish cinema with titles such as El día de la bestia (The Day of the Beast, 1995), La Comunidad (Common Wealth, 2002), 800 balas (800 Bullets, 2002), Crimen ferpecto (The Perfect Crime, 2004) and The Oxford Murders (2008).

His work has been nominated three times for Best Screenplay and Best Adapted Screenplay in the Goya Awards, and once for for Best Adapted Screenplay in the Cinema Writers Cricle Awards in Spain. His films have won numerous awards including the Grand Prix and the Special Jury Prize at the Cognac Festival du Film Policier, the Critics’ Award at Fantasporto, Best Film at the Fotogramas de Plata, and the Golden Raven at the Brussels International Festival of Fantasy Film.

He has worked with directors like Daniel Monzón, Oscar Aibar, Norberto Lopez and also with Pedro Almodóvar, but it is his relationship with director Álex de la Iglesia that has brought him the most success in his career: they have worked together on more than 10 occasions.

  1. Olá Jorge:-)

    I’m Sara a Portuguese screenwriter and a great fan of you work, especially together with Álex de la Iglesia. The wittiness, the intelligence and even malice of your words have created true classics such as one of my favourites EL DIA DE LA BESTIA.
    Thank you for your art.

    Have a great time in the conference!
