About Us

Los Ilusos Films Imagotipo

Los ilusos films is an independent production company founded by Jonás Trueba and Javier Lafuente, based on the experience of self-producing Los ilusos (2013), filmed in the spare time of a group of friends over months, without the aid of any outside funding or public financial support, and also distributed independently inside and outside Spain.

Since then, we have continued making films, trying our best to depend only on ourselves and not so much on the industry’s rhythms and requirements. We make a “possible” cinema, we adapt to the circumstances of the moment and each film, always in the search of our scale and production design, trying to be coherent throughout the creative process  up until reaching the viewers.

Throughout all these years our films have been made thanks to the trust and motivation of a group of people who have contributed their experience and knowledge to each of the projects.
