What to Look Forward to at Hispanicize
The 8th Annual Hispanicize event will be taking place April 3-6 in Miami, FL. The event, which is a great opportunity for digital creators, journalists, marketers, music artists and filmmakers, will be held at the JW Marriott Marquis and will bring together Latinos from all over.
“Our theme will be empowerment focused around the topic of scaling your dreams and ideas for maximum impact on business, creative projects and initiatives,” said Manny Ruiz, CEO of Hispanicize Media Group and creative director of the Hispanicize event. “We are working with brands, agencies, cultural influencers and business partners who are committed to collectively building a Hispanicize program that is more inspiring and invigorating than ever before.”
The event’s ¡DiMe! Summit, an influencer only event for Latino and multicultural creators and celebrities, will kick off the week on April 3. The Summit will transform the Rubell Family Collection in Miami’s Wynwood arts district into a creator’s playground featuring in-depth workshops on creative writing, photography, shooting and editing videos, branding, social media and much more.
Hispanicize and DiMe Media are also launching a new four-day track completely dedicated to multicultural video creators and filmmakers. The Video and Film Creators Track will tackle every angle of video and film production, platforms, monetization, creativity, video content marketing, sales and more.
The Video and Film Creators Track includes an event with Nicolas Alcala, CEO & Creative Director of Future Lighthouse, and one of the world's leading VR filmmakers. He will give attendees a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to succeed in this new medium, teach about the creative process for writing & filming for VR and talk about what the future holds for content creators and Cinematic VR.
A panel with Natalie Chaidez, executive producer from USA Network’s hit drama series ‘Queen of the South,’ and stars, Veronica Falcon and Jon Ecker, will also take place. Chaidez and the cast will discuss diversity in Hollywood both on and off screen, and will touch on the season two return under the leadership of Natalie Chaidez, one of the only Latina showrunners currently working in television. Chaidez will share her experience in the television industry and discuss the importance of having diverse perspectives in the writers’ room.
