    While we were unable to bring our youth to see their film at the festival, we greatly appreciate the communication and kindness exhibited by the Festival runners. We hope films created this summer at our upcoming Youth Media Academies will allow us to be accepted and attend in 2021. Thank you for promoting and encouraging young Latino filmmakers.
