RAVA Films is a commercial and film production company founded in 2010 by Rafael Salazar and Ava Wiland dedicated to the production of films of social relevance and original and artistic storytelling. Together, Wiland and Salazar have made the narrative short film “Camilo,” which was selected in several film festivals in the U.S. and abroad, including Urban World and Boston Latino and have collaborated on films with the visual arts institutions Art21, Tate, and The Bronx Museum of the Arts. Together, Wiland and Salazar were commissioned to direct and produce a series of 15 short documentary films about the “smARTpower” program (2011-12), a diplomatic initiative through the visual arts of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. In addition to documentary films, Rava Films has also created commercial content for clients such as Heineken, Pepsi and MySpace, among others. With capabilities of a full-service video and film production house, Rava creates both original independent film productions and film projects on a commission-basis, working alongside clients in all phases of production, from conceptualization and shooting, to post and dissemination.
In addition to client work, we also develop independent narrative and documentary projects.
