IN MEMORIAM: NATATCHA ESTEBANEZ

I have sad news for the independent media community. Natatcha Estébanez, Puerto Rican filmmaker and public television producer, died last weekat her home in Boston.

I want to tell you a little bit about Natatcha because she was one of the original founders of NALIP back in its genesis. When the East Coast filmmakers and media activists began emailing each other regarding the need to communicate with the Corporation for Public Broadcasting regarding the defunding of the Latino    consortium at the time (the National Latino Communications Center), Natatcha was a pivotal participant. When we got to the    point where we began communication with West Coast producers, Natatcha, who served on the ITVS board intervened. She convinced ITVS to invest in the nascent grouping of Latino producers so that we could meet face to face.  She never attended the meetings but it was her critical and timely intervention that helped get us in face-to-face meetings in Los Angeles which ultimately led to the formation of NALIP in 1999.

She produced and wrote "The Blue Diner" a feature narrative film about Puerto Ricans in Boston. She worked at La Plaza at WGBH for many years and most recently was working at WGBH with a children's series.

For many years, she served on the National Coalition for Independent Broadcasting Producers which continues to seat the ITVS Board of Directors. She served with distinction on the ITVS board of directors for a full term.

She leaves behind many, many loved ones who will grieve her passing and celebrate her rich and vibrant life.

Natatcha Estébanez

Natatcha Estébanez was a Boston-based, award-winning filmmaker who spent more than nearly two decades producing, directing and writing films and programs for television. Her first feature film, the critically acclaimed The Blue Diner, won the prestigious Alma Award for Outstanding Independent Motion Picture. The film aired on HBO and broadcast on PBS in 2003. Natatcha worked on the PBS series Race: The Power of an Illusion. She produced and directed 12 films for the favorite Poem Project for PBS, as well as four films for the Discovery channel and the Animal planet channel. She also worked with Henry Hampton, founder of Blackside, Inc. and creator of the acclaimed series Eyes On The Prize, on BreakThrough, a four part series about the struggles and contributions of multicultural scientists to the scientific field. Her films have won numerous awards including the Gold Award from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Silver Award from the New York Film and Television Festivals, four regional Emmy Awards, and the Gold Award at the Houston International Film Festival. She was a regular contributor to the WGBH series Greater Boston Arts. Natacha was instrumental in starting the National Association of Latino Independent Producers. She served on the National Coalition for Independent Broadcasting Producers, and served with distinction on the ITVS board of directors.

CALL FOR ENTRIES: DANCES WITH FILMS

DancesWithFilms, the only film festival where an audience can truly “discover” a film that isn’t due to be released next week, opens its doors for submissions. It's an exciting Year 10 with the momentum already building for the best discovery festival in Los Angeles. Named by the Hollywood Reporter as "the defiant fest of raw talent," DWF has showcased more than 800 up and coming filmmakers, their casts and crews. Alumni include great talents such as Will Schaeffer and Mark Olsen (2004), creators of HBO's Big Love series, Dan Harris (1999), writer of X2, Superman Returns; Kathryn Morris (1999), lead actor of CBS's Cold Case to give a few examples. Lauren Moews, 1999 and 2000 alumnus, went on to produce “Cabin Fever,” and has several projects in development.

We are dedicated to finding films the Hollywood industry haven't seen and giving these gems much needed exposure, publicity and opportunity. All films in competition have no known directors, actors, producers, or monies from known sources (i.e. " Imagine"). However we do allow working actors, and can give a special screening to any film that warrants it (as with last year's star-studded alumni film that is sweeping the festival scene, "Mojave Phone Booth") so if you aren't sure just give us a call or email us with your questions.

Submission Deadlines are April 9, 2007 for regular and May 16, 2007 for an extended (late) deadline, for the procrastinators.

Need info and/or a submission form? www.danceswithfilms.com

DEL TORO TAPPED FOR GUADALAJARA FESTIVAL HONORS

Mar. 19, 2007 - MEXICO CITY (Hollywood Reporter) - The Brazilian comedy-drama "The Year My Parents Went on Vacation" and the Dutch documentary "4 Elements" will bookend the 22nd Guadalajara International Film Festival, Mexico's top movie showcase. In all, 220 films will screen during the nine-day event, which begins Thursday and runs through March 30. Guadalajara native Guillermo del Toro, whose dark fantasy "Pan's Labyrinth" won three Oscars, will receive a career achievement award at the opening ceremony. Vicente Lenero, who wrote Mexico's all-time box office champ, "The Crime of Father Amaro," also will be honored with an achievement award. Among the guests scheduled this year are Antonio Banderas, who will present "Summer Rain," his second film as a director, and Viggo Mortensen, in town with adventure film "Alatriste," billed as Spain's most expensive production ever.


TORTILLA HEAVEN A COMEDIC BIBLICAL PARABLE

Mar. 16, 2007 - HOLLYWOOD (LatinHeat.com) - Miracles do happen. Six years in the making Tortilla Heaven has beaten all the odds overcoming lack of funding, an unknown ethnic cast, a damaged film negative and having to re-shoot 2 years after the initial production. However, on Friday, March 16, 2007 Tortilla Heaven opened nationwide. Director/writer Judy Hecht Dumontet, was raised between Mexico City and the "Land of Enchantment", the American Southwest, and believes that miracles exist. “But miracles bring consequences,” says Dumontet. “And, just like in the Bible, a miracle is also a test. I wrote Tortilla Heaven as a modern-day fable, a comic Biblical parable”. Full Story here


MILLER ON SIN CITY, SNYDER ON WATCHMEN

Mar. 16, 2007 - (Superhero Hype!) - In talking with worldwide press members today in Second Life about 300, Frank Miller said that he talked to Robert Rodriguez yesterday about Sin City 2. They hope to be prepping the sequel in the next six weeks for shooting to start in June. Director Zack Snyder also said that he is trying to develop Watchmen with Warner Bros. as an R-rated film. He hopes that with the success of 300 it will be easier to get it going. One of the aspects they are concentrating on is the costumes, because he said "you want people to take the movie seriously." He said, like the "Spider-Man" movie costumes, people have come to expect that kind of detail. Miller added that he knows who he wants to play The Spirit, but he said, "If I told you, I'd have to kill myself."


OSCAR-WINNING URUGUAYAN SINGER DRAWS U.S. FOLLOWING

Mar. 14, 2007 - LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Two years ago Uruguayan singer-songwriter Jorge Drexler was not famous enough to perform at the Academy Awards, but he snuck in a few bars a cappella while accepting the Oscar for best original song. This week he returned to Los Angeles and sang "Al Otro Lado Del Rio" a cappella again, this time in the city's most prestigious music venue, the Walt Disney Concert Hall, to his biggest U.S. audience yet.

"The Latin stereotype is breaking down and the film industry has a lot to do with that," Drexler said. "This city is where the most is being done to turn over that stale stereotype of the fun and partying Latin." He points to the three films by Mexican directors -- "Babel," "Pan's Labyrinth" and "Children of Men" -- that racked up 16 Oscar nominations this year. He also refers to Argentine composer Gustavo Santaolalla, who won his second consecutive Oscar for best soundtrack for "Babel" after winning for "Brokeback Mountain" in 2006. "Gustavo makes a connection with his roots in his music and gives it such a high level of quality to make it appeal to the rest of the world," said Drexler. "He is a musician I admire."

TARANTINO, RODRIGUEZ BASK IN DEATH AND TERROR

Mar. 14, 2007 - LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - On paper, it sounds like the polar opposite of a box office sensation - a three-hour ode to the Z-grade cinema of the 1970s, shot in the style of the time with enough sex and violence to satiate any exploitation junkie. But when the creative masterminds behind such a project turn out to be Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez, suddenly, it seems like a Hollywood gold mine. Indeed, there are perhaps no other filmmakers who could get a movie like Dimension Films' planned April 6 release "Grindhouse" off the ground. In "Grindhouse," each director contributed his own feature-length segment to the film - Rodriguez's "Planet Terror" sees Rose McGowan fend off a plague of zombies with a machine gun leg, while Tarantino's "Death Proof" features
Kurt Russell as the homicidal Stuntman Mike, who enjoys running people down with his muscle car, a black Dodge Charger. Connecting the two are fabricated trailers for such upcoming features as "Werewolf Women of the S.S." from guest filmmakers including Eli Roth and Rob Zombie. Full Story here
