Fábio Erdos is a Brazilian filmmaker and photographer member of Panos Pictures, one of the world's leading independent and award-winning photographic agencies.

He began his career in early 2015, after completing cinema school at Darcy Ribeiro Film School in Rio de Janeiro and Prague Film School.

His films have been shown at the GLAAD, in New York, One World Film Festival, in Prague, La Gacilly Photo Festival, in France, as well as the Museum of Tomorrow and the Museum of Modern Art, in Rio de Janeiro. In 2019, Fábio won a World Press Photo award for the "Marielle and Monica" film, produced for The Guardian.

Previous to his film and photography career, Fábio worked for the international non-profit ActionAid for many years, where he gained experience in the grassroots work on poverty and social inequality.

 

During this time he worked in rural communities in Northeast Brazil, a region that suffers from one of the worst droughts in the last 50 years, in Haiti, a year after the devastating earthquake of 2010, and in the rural communities of Mozambique. These experiences inspired him to pursue filmmaking and photography as a way to convey contemporary socio-environmental issues.

Fábio's clients include international non-profits and media outlets, such as ActionAid, Global Witness, CNN's Great Big Story, The Wall Street Journal, and The Guardian. He is also a contributor to The Everyday Projects.

Fábio focuses on documenting stories through a personal and intimate narrative, aiming to bring awareness and, most importantly, impact on social and environmental issues.
