Juan Palacios (b. 1986, Basque Country, Spain) is a filmmaker working with observational documentary, experimental video and visual-diary film essays. With a particular predilection for the boundaries between human culture and nature, mysticism and materialism, he mostly employs imagery from a factual world without an apparent mise en scène to create an alternative universe.

He produced, wrote, filmed, directed and edited several films that have been shown in  festivals around the globe. His first feature documentary film, PEDALÓ, won the Irizar Basque Film Award at San Sebastian International Film Festival, 2016 and The Best Feature Documentary Award at Bushwick Film Festival in New York in 2017. He is currently finishing the editing of his second non-fiction feature film, INLAND, a sensorial trip through the empty landscape of Spain.
