Participants will work with the Latino Lens and NALIP staff, crew and mentors to work out the best plan on how to produce the short film.
NALIP reserves the right to withhold portions of the support if, during a required update or review of the project, certain goals and guidelines previously set are not met.
It is required that each Latino Lens team have all consent, release forms, rights and permissions before moving to the next phase. If the team does not meet this requirement by the end of the pre-production period, then the team will be disqualified.
Selected finalists must provide a financial production report that details the costs and usage of the budget and account for all support. Grantees must also acknowledge NALIP and Latino Lens in the opening and end credits, all promotional material and publicity of the short film project.
Final short narrative projects must not have had a theatrical release, US broadcast airing or be available for online viewing prior to the premiere event at the Latino Media Festival on fall of 2018 in Los Angeles, CA.
