Her films, long and short, have received critical and audience acclaim while landing numerous accolades at national and international festivals.

Yoyes, Helena Taberna's first feature, was released in March 2000, obtaining important box-office takings. Columbia Tristar distributed the movie in Spain with 100 copies and the Italian company Intrafilms managed its international sales. Yoyes was one of the Spanish productions to win most international awards that year.

Her second feature, Extranjeras, produced by her own company, Lamia Producciones, and released in 2003, was screened in competition at the Seminici in Valladolid and shown at cinemas in major cities throughout Spain. Sherlock Films distributed the film with a launch of 10 copies. Extranjeras was a huge hit with the critics and participated in numerous international festivals and events, winning awards at several of them.

Helena Taberna's latest feature film, La Buena Nueva, was also produced by her company, Lamia Producciones. It was officially released in the Official Selection at the Valladolid International Film Festival (Seminci, 2008), at which Unax Ugalde carried off the Best Leading Actor Award.
