About the event
What is Latino Film Market 2017?
● The Latino Film Market (LFM) event focuses on providing community networking opportunities and creating direct tools for upcoming Latino filmmakers and industry professionals from around the world. It would take place from July 27 to 30, 2017 in Manhattan, New York City.
● During this four-day-long event, we will program live screenings of Latino independent films that would be recognized at a national and international level creating economic development in the United States and Latin American countries.
● In addition to screenings, the Latino Film Market will host a series of panels, workshops, and lectures featuring: acting and casting, writing, pre-production, production, camera and lighting, wardrobe, sound mixing, art direction, hair and make-up workshops.
● The Latino Film Market will also present a series of awards and honors on the final day of the festival. Special consideration will be made for female directors and other underrepresented populations in the selection process.
● Latino Film Market will screen 50 films from 20+ Latin American countries in Manhattan, bringing many individuals from neighboring communities.
● Our event would not be possible without corporate sponsors. It is only through partnerships with companies that we are able to give our community the knowledge of filmmaking through professional Latinos experienced on the field in the entertainment industry. In return, the LFM would able to offer high-profile advertisement to corporations on a variety of levels.
