All films must be at least New York City Premieres in English and if the film is in Spanish it must have English subtitles.

Director’s Biography:

Founder and Host of Gamertag Radio. Since 2001, Danny Peña has been at the forefront of Internet video game community building. Known for his unmistakable voice and interview skills. Radio broadcasting was a calling for New York-born Peña, the son of Dominican immigrants, who grew up surrounded and inspired by hip-hop and video games, always gravitating toward the camera and the microphone. It was Peña’s heavy involvement in the hip-hop scene that taught him to be a promoter, but his heart was always in gaming. That is why, in the Spring of 2005, a few months before iTunes launched its podcast platform, Peña, better known as Godfree in the gaming community, left the hip-hop world to launch Gamertag Radio, the successor of other online radio ventures he had started as a teenager in the 1990s, long before the arrival of smart phones and iPods. Peña is an inductee in the Podcaster Hall of Fame.
