Driven by her passion for art, film & design, Anita Pico directed her first short film "Camille" at twenty-two years old, winning the Audience Award at Durham Film Festival. Born in the north of Spain, she graduated with a Summa Culm Laude Degree at Saginaw Valley State University, where she explored her art in different fields, including theatre, design, or photography. 
Her short "Blacks or Whites", graduation film from the University for the Creative Arts, premiered at the British Film Institute in London in 2019, screening in festivals in Madrid, London,  Moscow, and more.

In 2020, Pico is selected as part of the "New Creatives" program by BBC Arts and Arts Council, shooting her project "What a Circus", which premiered on BBC 4 and BBC iPlayer in 2020, currently in festivals.
