“It is an honor to be part of the 2020 Official Latino Council. I feel a great responsibility to support promising upcoming filmmakers. The caliber of production value and stories submitted are mind-blowing. Official Latino, created by director Danny Hastings, has given the Latinx community “a shot” to see people who look like us and represent us on-screen. There’s more than inspiration and artistic expression at stake here. We, the Latinx community, as the largest minority have not been accurately represented on screen, ever! We have so much to say, so much to offer. It's important to have platforms that support our voices and artistic expressions. I feel extremely proud & grateful to be part of a council that will give the winner filmmakers this licensing agreement with HBO for their Film.
The 6th Annual Official Latino Film and Arts Festival selected over 100 films to represent the festival. All films will be accessible from November 25-30, 2020.
