"Film director, screenwriter and producer. Cecilia Bartolomé is one of the pioneering women of Spanish cinema."

Cecilia Bartolomé was born in Alicante in 1943, and raised on the island of Fernando Poo in the former Spanish colony of Equatorial Guinea. In the 1960s, she abandoned her studies in economics to join the Official School of Cinematography in Madrid. She graduated in 1969, becoming –together with Pilar Miró and Josefina Molina– one of the first women to gain a degree in film. By then she had already directed several short films. She started work as a publicist and in 1978 released her first feature film '¡Vámonos Bárbara!', considered by the critics to be the first feminist film in Spanish cinema.  In 1980 she directed two documentaries on the period of the Spanish transition to democracy, and in 1996 presented 'Lejos de África' (Far from Africa), a reflection on the last years of colonialism through the story of two little girls. In 2005 she produced a documentary chapter for the television series 'Cuéntame cómo pasó'. She received the Gold Medal for Merit in Fine Arts in 2013.
