From Visual Effects on “Machete” to Winning a place on NALIP: Latino Lens Narrative Incubator

With issues of diversity dominating the conversations surrounding the film industry, it’s always heartening to see film festivals supporting minority talent. Last week, at the Latino Reels panel at the Sundance Film Festival, NALIP (National Association of Latino Independent Producers) announced the winners of its 2015 Latino Lens: Narrative Shorts Incubator. Latino Lens is a new, exclusive incubation and media content production program designed to develop, nurture and produce a series of creative Latino projects.

“With Latino Lens, NALIP is thrilled to provide original production programming and support and promote Latino content creators and filmmakers. With the embarrassing and shameful lack of diversity seen yet again at this year’s Oscars, NALIP focuses on actions that directly address this need for change within and without Hollywood’s antiquated system,” said Axel Caballero, Executive Director of NALIP. Winners receive contributions for pre-production, production, and post-production tools, resources, and assets to support the successful completion of their short films.

Among the winners was MARU BUENDIA-SENTIES, whose short film WINDOWS joins three others —One Halloween by writer/director Rebecca Murga,Swimming in the Desert by writer/director Alvaro Ron, and Dying Man by writer/director Rodrigo Reyes—as the finalists of this months-long search. The final shorts will screen in June at 2016 NALIP Media Summit.
