Posted by on October 07, 2016

This year NALIP’s Current Official Members and a select committee of industry professionals will vote to select the winner in each category for Film of the Year. The two categories selected are:


  • Latino International which includes cinema receiving noteworthy attention prior to festival and award season. NALIP believes any of these films can be taken for your award consideration.
  • The Latinx category features the best in US Latino and breakthrough Latinx filmmaking talent. These films could include a documentary, animation or feature.

Regardless of the winner, NALIP believes, all of the following films should be in your short list for award consideration. Members will receive a separate voting ballot. Your membership must be current and in good standing to participate.
