Born and raised in Mexico City, Antonio Salume dreamt of becoming a magician as a child. However, his obsession with Harry Potter movies paved the way for him to become a filmmaker instead. In 2018 he earned his BFA in Film & TV Production from NYU Tisch School of the Arts.

Antonio has worked at A24, Cinereach, Archer Gray, and Big Beach, and as an assistant to five-time Academy Award-winning filmmaker Alejandro G. Iñárritu. He has helped create projects for H&M, BBC, Honda, and LG, and the films he has worked on have premiered at festivals such as Shorts México, Tribeca Film Festival, and the Chinese American Film Festival.

Antonio is passionate about getting to know people, Middle Eastern cuisines, and running outdoors. He is currently based in Mexico City and aspires to create meaningful and inclusive work.
