This year NALIP was met with a truly exciting group of projects and filmmakers, and we want to thank everyone that applied. For the second year, the Latino Media Market will be held virtually and is made possible by MeetToMatch by allowing us to take the market Internationally. 

This year the Latino Media Market is supported by WarnerMedia & the California Arts Council Statewide Networks Programs. Selected fellows submitted projects within the four verticals of:

Low-Budget Feature Films

TV/Streaming Series

Virtual meetings will be held July 16th through July 18th and finalists will be meeting with Studio & Network Executives, Agents, Distributors, Funders, Co-Producers, and Mentors  from across the industry to advance Latinx voices in Hollywood.


“As theaters continue to open their doors and productions are back in motion, we are enthusiastic that this year's selection of Latino Media Market fellows represents a shift in a changing industry that is continuing to invest in diverse voices.
