ATTENTION FILMMAKERS! Do you have a feature project that is ready for development, financing or distribution? A documentary project that is in production or post-production in need of finishing funds? How about a GREAT concept for an Episodic Series? Or perhaps an awesome podcast?

The LMM™ will connect you with people who can help, mentor, advise, fund, option, or propel your career to the next step. Submit to NALIP’s Latino Media Market!

The Latino Media Market ("LMM") consists of a series of meetings for selected projects. Filmmakers meet one-on-one with industry representatives who provide sound advice in how to advance their projects to the next level. If your project meets the specific needs of the company, this can open a window for your project to grow into a commissioned pilot, obtain a broadcast license or completion funds.

The Latino Media Market happens concurrently with the NALIP Media Summit each summer. 2022's market is set for August 12-13.
