Fernando Pérez Valdés is a prominent Cuban film director.

Pérez graduated from the University of Havana with a degree in Language and Spanish Literature, and began working in the Cuban film industry in 1971 as an assistant director, before directing his first documentary in 1975.

His feature debut was the drama Clandestinos (1987) but it wasn’t until Madagascar (1994) that he garnered significant international recognition. Pérez later directed La Vida es Silbar (1998) and Suite Habana (2003). Suite Habana is considered by some critics to be the best Cuban film in decades. Variety hailed it as "A lyrical, meticulously-crafted and unexpectedly melancholy homage to the battered but resilient inhabitants of a battered but resilient city." His most recent film called Madrigal tells a story about life in the theater world. It appeared in film festivals in 2007. His current project is about Jose Marti.
