Leopoldo Laborde (born in November 6th, 1970) is a Mexican film director.

Director, screenwriter, photographer, editor and self-made producer, he enters the movie-business in 1984 as an production assistant in Mexico City. In the years between 1988-1995 he shoots four feature films on home-video and he develops his skills of story-teller and his visual aesthetics. In 1997 he shoots his first feature film in 35mm., Angeluz, a horror film that later became a cult movie. Immediately afterwards, he writes and shoots Sin Destino (1999) and Un Secreto de Esperanza (2002). The main actors are respectively Roberto Cobo and Katy Jurado, and these two titles are the last acting performance they gave. Sin Destino has been knowed as “a key piece in raw realism”, and Un Secreto de Esperanza won about 12 awards in several film festivals around the world. During 2005 he shoots Enemy, this time with debutant performers.

Laborde is known for his particularly vision and versatility in styles.
