WHAT IS THE LATINX FILM FESTIVAL?
The LatinX Film Festival is Part of the LatinX in Film Organization. The Goal of LXF is to promote the growth of the LatinX Film Community by increasing Interest in Acting And Filmmaking. The plan to achieve this is by organizing free events and workshops that teach acting and filmmaking in the LatinX Community.
More and more Film Festivals are shying away from awards and even live screenings.
But our goal is to Award Films and Directors that share The ever changing LatinX Cultures by the stories that they tell.
THE PURPOSE of the festival is so that LXF can determine how many LatinX Filmmakers and Actors there is. This will help LXF understand what will be the next steps for the organization.
We will have Awards for Best Actor and Actress, Best Latinx Cinematographer, Best LatinX Short, and Best LatinX Director.
We will also Host Student Short Competitions. For college Students we will have an Award for Rising LatinX Director, and For HighSchool Students and Award For Best LatinX HighSchool Short.
We Will Have an Award for Best LatinX Documentary as well.
