Marcelo Jauregui-Volpe is excited to be joining the Tri-Co Film Festival as the Co-Director. At Haverford, Marcelo took every opportunity he could to take media courses, and submitted twice to the Tri-Co Festival.

Since graduating Haverford, he has taught English in northwest Spain, produced for a Spanish-language news show, and hosted a podcast on Washington D.C. ‘s heat islands. You can often find him on a run, but he also likes to cook and has recently been reading Domingo Villar’s detective novels.
