TOWARDS A SUPPORTIVE CINEMA
(New show reel is coming soon)
My movies come from my scripts, my scripts emerge from my inspiration, my inspiration thrives from my dreams, my dreams feed on my hopes, my hopes arise from my doubts, my doubts hide my fear, my fear increases my courage, my courage develop my happiness, my happiness goes together with my Ikigai, my Ikigai guides my experience, my experience builds my Life.
The topics I write about are based on true stories such as family, teenagehood and its hardships, childhood, education, women and children rights, homeless, the future of our society, new technologies, the environment, climate change, animals, Africa, Spain under Franco’s regime, sports, fashion etc …
The art of cinema is one of the best means to help build tomorrow’s society, as it is both a recreational means and also an impacting one. » SVR

GENESIS & FIRST SUPPORT:
The short film October 9th that Sophie Venecia Reyes wrote and directed, reinforces the idea to develop a Supportive cinema she wants to share with the realization of his first feature film.
"I am so happy to share with you this amazing time that I lived through in Los Angeles ... Officially I was only supposed to stay one short week at the end of January, but in the first days, I met some amazing people and immediately we decided to make the short film I wrote called October 9th.
I am certain of one thing- that everything is possible when you decide to work hard and especially never to forget what you wish to create and the way you wish to create it. Thank to everybody who joined me in this project and helped to get it made. Without you, you, and you...nothing would have been possible. I am sincerely touched to say "We did it in two weeks, it is difficult to believe". SVR
More than a film, Sophie presented her vision to work hand by hand with charities organisations. Innocence en Danger and ACTION ENFANCE followed and joined her on this first step which was to built a footbridge between Action and Art.

The short film Ok, BOOMERS that Sophie Venecia Reyes wrote and directed, is with the idea to develop a Supportive cinema in collaboration with the association EVERYTHING INSIDE US.
The world is changing, new generations have different benchmarks and values are essential. Change is the key! It is in collaboration with the association EVERYTHING INSIDE US (www.everythinginsideus.org), that we asked 6 participants from different generations (Marie, Camille, Jeff, Reza, Christine, Sophie and Adam) to answer our questions !

Short film - 2020
The short film CONNECTED that Sophie Venecia Reyes wrote and directed, was possible thanks to the two wonderful actors and dancers Julie Schotsmans and Hakim Hachouche. The idea of this film is to put in evidence that NATURE is a precious treasure that we never have to forget.
Julie, dancer, lacking inspiration for her next audition, joins the Parisian banks, starts the music and will find inspiration thanks to an unusual partner.
