Latino Filmmakers Network presents three Filmmakers whose movies premiered this year " Taco Shop", "The Extraordinary Ordinary" & Student Academy Award Winner "Esta Es Tu Cuba." They will talk about the importance of storytelling using diversity and inclusion but also being able to project their American Latino voice and how we can work together to break through the stereotypes and hurtles in Hollywood in order to be heard and to tell universal stories. This is an important panel for all filmmakers to attend so we can continue to empower each other and our community.
