HISPANIC HERITAGE: Flying High
Everyone wants to soar. Actors yearn for it all: theater, film, television, commercials and voice-overs for animation. Filmmakers want that opening aerial scene that transports the audience. For Hispanic Heritage we celebrate those working and aiming for higher ground. Hear from those that have done it, how they continue to do it and what creative resourcing pays the bills within their artistic realm. Learn how three best friends put their heads and experience together, forging a new company to fill a void and how they’re in demand with new technology delivering top quality for compromised budgets. Join us for some networking, conversations and wine. Because this Hispanic Heritage, it’s not a whine fest ~ it’s about taking yourself and project to new heights ~ ¡si se puede!

SPECIAL SCREENING EVENT:
JOIN us Friday night, September 19th for a special NYC screening of a feature film by, Fanny Véliz a Venezuelan filmmaker/actor based in LA who wrote and shot a moving family story set in Texas.
This writer/director and actress raised production funds to shoot her first feature film, Homebound in 2013. Says Véliz, “It is about empowering the community to empower filmmakers to tell the Latino stories Hollywood chooses to neglect.” To do this the filmmaker has decided to use the web platform TUGG.com.” TUGG is a crowdsourcing platform that gives people the ability to bring the movies to their local movie theater without any up-front-costs. “I’m committed to helping transform the image of Latinos in the media by telling stories that aren’t usually told,” says Véliz. “We are all used to seeing stories of immigration, gangs, and other stereotypes, this film shows another side of the American Latino. Homebound is an American story, a human story told with an American Latino cast.”
Homebound tells the story of Richard Lynn, a successful young Latino business professional who returns to his small hometown in Texas to help his dying father. His father insists he take over the family business, a bar. Secretly, the young man wants to burn down the bar because he blames it for the death of his own mother and the illness of his father. In the process he rediscovers his childhood’s small town and falls truly in love for the first time.
The film features a cast of seasoned actors which includes Enrique Castillo, whose work in such films as El Norte, Mi Familia and the cult classic Blood In Blood Out have made him a fan favorite among Latino audiences and his role in Showtime’s Weeds has made him a hit among mainstream audiences. Fanny Véliz, in addition to her producing, writing, and directing duties also plays the female lead in the film.
