NALIP Announces the 13th Annual Latino Media Market Fellows

The National Association of Latino Independent Producers proudly announces the selected group of content creators to participate in the 2017 Latino Media Market (LMM). Meetings will take place during the NALIP Media Summit at the Ray Dolby Ballroom at the Hollywood & Highland center in Hollywood, CA on June 23rd and June 24th.


The Latino Media Market is presented by HBO, ITVS and the California Arts Council Statewide Networks Programs. The Latino Media Market™ is an executive meeting series where the selected fellows and their projects meet one-on-one for scheduled pitch meetings with industry representatives who provide sound advice on how to advance their project to the next level. This year’s categories include:


  • Low-Budget Features in Development or Pre-production

  • Documentary Works-in-Progress

  • TV/Streaming Scripted Concept/Pilot

  • Digital Web Series


NALIP received a record number of incredibly powerful submissions and after much deliberation by the NALIP team and industry veteran evaluators the top 27 projects were selected.


Ben Lopez, NALIP’s Executive Director said, "We are thrilled to announce the 2017 Latino Media Market projects and fellows. They are perfect examples of the rich, diverse and innovative vision and talent of our Latino content creators. We know they will find success at the NALIP Media Summit 2017".
