09 de diciembre de 2011

In an effort to spotlight the next generation of U.S. Latino filmmakers, organizers of Hispanicize 2012 (April 11-13) announced that the third installment of its national trends event will feature a Latino Film Showcase and professional development program. The film showcase ({http://film.hispanicizeevent.com}) will highlight more than a combined 40 feature length films, documentaries and short films by Latino filmmakers. “Hispanicize 2012 will be one of the most influential national platforms Latino filmmakers have to nurture and promote their careers. Our event will gather so many journalists, Latino bloggers and other key cultural influencers together around the themes of media, social media, marketing and entertainment that it will provide a natural launch pad for filmmakers to be discovered and recognized,” said Hispanicize 2012 creative director and organizer, Manny Ruiz. The Hispanicize 2012 Latino Film Showcase will be produced in conjunction with Latin Heat Media, LLC and Getty Images Hispanic, two leading entertainment content platforms. The Hispanicize 2012 Film Showcase will screen feature length films and documentaries in South Florida movie theaters and at the event’s main conference hotel itself, the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Miami. Overseen by film showcase organizer/curator Román Morales of Austin, Texas, the film showcase part of the event will include content from Latin America but will have a special emphasis on the works of U.S.-based Latino filmmakers. The deadline submission deadline is February 7. The final deadline for film entries is February 21. More info. {http://film.hispanicizeevent.com}
