Director Biography – GABE MONTERO (ESCAPE PARTY)

At the young age of 2 years old, Gabe was first introduced to
Cinema and he’s been hooked ever since. Back then he had to
lean sideways and sit on mom’s purse to be able to see past the
unbelievably tall person sitting in front of him. His passion was
evident, and this led him to pursue filmmaking. He made his directorial debut with “Escape Party”, (2021, USA) a short film about the worst team of players you could put together to play in an escape room.
“Escape Party” was the winner for “Best Short Short Film” in the Paris Independent Film Festival. It was also an Official Selection for the Berlin Flash Film Festival, MicroMania Film Festival, and Feedback Under 5 Minute Festival, and placed as a Semi-Finalist in The Couch Film Festival, with the amazing ensemble cast nominated for “Best Cast” and Gabe winning the award for “Best First Time Filmmaker”
In the spirit of making a film about puzzles, we hid “a clue” in this biography. Happy searching!
