Alejandro Fernando Amenabar Cantos is a Spanish film director. Amenabar was born in Santiago, Chile to a Spanish mother and Chilean father, but the family moved to Spain just one year after his birth. He studied cinema at Madrid's Universidad Complutense but eventually dropped out.
In addition to writing and directing his own films, Amenabar has maintained a notable career as a composer of film scores, including the Goya Awards-nominated score for Jose Luis Cuerda's La lengua de las mariposas.
Amenabar was awarded the Grand Prix of the Jury at the International Venice Film Festival in 2004 for Mar adentro ("The Sea Inside"), and in February 2005 the same film won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.
