In 2019, Daranas directed the documentary Natalia, about the noted Cuban ethnographer and writer Natalia Bolívar Aróstegui.


The film was selected as the Cuban entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 91st Academy Awards. However, it was not on the final list of submitted films released by Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in October 2018.


In 2017, Sergio and Sergei was released, a comedy set in Cuba in 1991, describing the vicissitudes in the friendship between a Cuban ham radio enthusiast and a Soviet cosmonaut, trapped in the Mir space station during the USSR collapse.


Arguably, it was Behavior (Conducta), released in 2014, the film that garnered Daranas widespread international recognition.

The film premiered in February 2014 in Havana and then played at the Málaga Film Festival, before having its US premieres simultaneously at the Chicago Latino Film Festival and Havana Film Festival New York in April 2014. Behavior was then screened in the Contemporary World Cinema section at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival. It was selected as the Cuban entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 87th Academy Awards, but was not nominated.


In 2012, Daranas wrote and directed Bluechacha, a music EPK for Buena Vista Social Club's Manuel Galbán's last album. Bluechacha was nominated that year to the XIII Latin Grammy Award, in the category of Best Long-Form Music Video.


In a poll conducted by Cinema Tropical (the New York-based non-profit media arts organization), both Behavior and Sergio and Sergei were included among the 100 most significant Latin-American films of the 2010-2019 decade.


Los dioses rotos (Fallen gods) was Daranas' film directorial debut, in 2008. Daranas wrote a story, based on interviews he'd collected through the years, about a university professor who gets involved in the underworld of prostitution and procuring. The film was made thanks to a fund for low budget projects issued by the Ministry of Culture. It was shot in a digital format and later filmed-out.


In 2004, he wrote and co-directed with Natasha Vázquez Los últimos gaiteiros de La Habana (The last bagpipers of Havana), a documentary about Eduardo Lorenzo, a nonagenarian Galician bagpiper who teaches young Cubans to play the instrument and returns to his native village in Spain after 50 years of absence. This documentary won the Premio Internacional de Periodismo Rey de España (2004 edition), a prestigious Iberoamerican journalism award.

Also in 2004, Daranas wrote and directed the telefilm ¿La vida en rosa?, a comedy about "the false barrier we sometimes raise between purportedly pure art and popular art". It won the Grand Prize and other six awards at the First National Television Festival of Cuba.


The film won the Audience Award and the Film Critics Association Award at the 30th Havana Film Festival. It became a box-office hit and the press called it "the biggest audiovisual event in Cuba of recent times" and "one of the best Cuban films after 2000". It was Cuba's entry to the 82nd Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film.


His directorial debut in television was in 1999–2000 with La tierra más hermosa (The loveliest land), a series of 12 documentaries co-directed with Rolando Almirante. The series explored various aspects of Cuban ethnography, culture, nature and history.


Ernesto Daranas' beginnings as a storyteller took place in the radio while still a college student. In 1983, he became a Bachelor in Geography at the Instituto Superior Pedagógico (now University of Educational Sciences).
