A grassroots movement among female directors has quickly taken hold, with dozens of female directors taking to Twitter to post images of themselves on set with the hashtag #FemaleFilmmakerFriday.
The National Association of Latino Independent Producers (NALIP) is having its annual Media Summit at The Ray Dolby Ballroom at Hollywood and Highland. We're looking for volunteers to join us for the four-day event to help create an inspirational experience for those interested in celebrating Latinx all across media. Volunteers will be able to participate in different teams of NALIP such as in Registration, Digital Production, Communications, PR and more! Volunteering for NALIP Media Summit is an exciting opportunity to meet new people and companies in the industry.
While we have to wait until 2019 for a new Wonder Woman, there are several ladies that will occupy screen time in 2018 in those big sci-fi, fantasy, action-adventure and comic book tentpoles that audiences can look forward to.
It’s not hard to see women of color showcasing their talent on screen this past year. Five critics from the Los Angeles Times took turns picking their three favorite characters from the past year in film. Check out women of color & film critic Jen Yamato’s choices below.
This winter has seen a variety of different releases of films directed by Latinx directors, including Cooco and The Shape of Water. Joining that list is the soon to be released film Ferdinand, directed by Carlos Saldanha. We can expect to see this in theatres on December 15th 2017.
Carlos Saldanha, who is known for his work in the Ice Age and Rio franchises. Needless to say, Carlos Saldanha is an animated animal expert. With his latest, Ferdinand, Saldanha gives his take on the classic story of a pacifist fighting bull, first told in Munro Leaf’s classic 1936 children’s book, and later, in an Oscar-winning Disney short. A 2004 Oscar nominee for his Gone Nutty animated short, Saldanha would take Blue Sky Studios to its fourth Oscar nomination if the film makes it into the final batch of animated contenders.
The film also features the voices of a variety of other Latinx individuals such as the NALIP Lupe Award Winning Actress and advocate Gina Rodriguez (Una). Viewers will also be hearing the voices of Juanes (Juan), Gabriel Iglesias (Cuartro), and Belita Moreno (Shopkeeper). NALIP is thrilled to see many Latinx individuals showcasing their talents in a feature animation.
In an interview with Deadline, Carlos discusses a film with a message of tolerance, kindness and love.
We want to express a big thank you to those of you who were able to join us at our 3-Part VR/AR Workshop. We hope you had as much fun as we did on this venture into the world of virtual and augmented reality.
