NALIP's very own Projects Director, Ben Lopez is at DOCSDF: Docs Forum. NALIP has partnered with DOCSDF and we're wexcited to have a presence in Mexico City. Lopez will be evaluating the best documentary pitch with select filmmakers receiving an invititation to the 2016 Latino Media Market.
Also present are NALIP 2015 Latino Media Market Fellows, Alex Rivera and Cristina Ibarra, who were invited to pitch their documentary, The Infiltrators at DOCSDF. Additional Fellows are Chris Valdes and Ted Griswold are also pitching their documentary Olancho after participating in the 2015 Latino Media Market. With his documentary, Purgatorio, influencing the art of the documentary, NALIPster Rodrigo Reyes has been invited to lead a class at DOCSDF in regards to his poetic approach to creating documentaries. Lastly(but not least!), fellow NALIPster Diego Briceño of Makila and Cuban Hat is leading a workshop on The Art of Pitching. We are proud of the work our members are creating here and how their presence is being felt abroad in Mexico City.
