Experimental media artist, filmmaker, and cultural event creator.  Miguel Novelo was born in December 1992, in the peninsula of Yucatan Mexico. Self-taught in video making, he got a scholarship from Fundacion Pablo Garcia to study an associate degree from Escuela TAI, in Madrid Spain. From there,  in 2013, he moved back to Campeche where he made several short films and initiated a filmmaking movement with the co-creation of the first competitive film festival in his hometown, the Campeche Film Festival. In 2015 he is awarded the Premio a la Juventud en Artes in Campeche. 
After the second edition of the festival, he was awarded again, the scholarship from Fundacion Pablo Garcia, and a portfolio scholarship from SFAI to study in the fall of 2015. There he earned a Bachelor’s degree in filmmaking and a minor in art and technology. He was awarded some recognitions such as two consecutive years the "Outstanding Film Student Award" and "Best in Show" in his final academic show. During this time, Miguel's practice evolved into a more immersive and expanded form of media making under the mentorship and working with artists like JD Beltran, IF/THEN collective, Cristobal Martinez, Rhonda Holberton, Mads Lynnearup, Toiz Rodriguez and Christopher Coppola. 
In 2018 he co-founded the collective Futuro Sureste with Andrea Boettiger and Alejandro Coba. 
After a short but much-appreciated spell working at SFMOMA, he got into the Stanford MFA program, where he initiated his research in live streaming and media sculptures.
