Here at NALIP we are proud to see an emergence in recognition in Latinx talent as more film festivals such as Sundance, Tribeca, and South by Southwest exhibit these works and give independent creators access to a greater audience. The following is a list of upcoming independent films written and directed by Latinx content creators from the United States, plus some additional works from Latinx individuals who while not born in the United States, still convey a powerful message through their work. We recognize that these films are all diverse in the internal and external struggles they bring to light as well as the vast range of genres each one partakes in. Given the different production stages, budgets, and amount of time needed to make these films, they further exemplify the flexibility of independent Latinx filmmakers when honing their craft. While underrepresentation of minorities persists to be an obstacle that all of Hollywood needs to work together to combat, NALIP sees the conversation growing stronger every year.
