Metro-New York’s only monthly series for Latino multimedia-makers & actors
PRIME LATINO MEDIA Salón
“A support network to advocate, promote and advance mainstream & Latino projects in English & Spanish"
Wednesday, December 02nd, 6-10PM
Padrino & Madrina Awards 2015
We can’t do it alone! At PRIME LATINO MEDIA we firmly believe in the power of networking and forging working relationships to move projects forward and advance careers. We also know the power of having a “Padrino” and “Madrina” (Godfather & Godmother) in the industry. To that effect, we highlight Latinos who aside from being powerhouses in the industry, believe in community and selflessly support Latinos and their projects. No better way to celebrate our mantra for 2016 ~ ¡Latinos Unidos!

Luis Antonio Ramos @LuisARamosActor
A Puerto Rican native who was raised in the Bronx, he is best known for his scene-stealing role as Carlos “Vibora” Ruiz — a street-savvy drug dealer and the leader of the Soldado Nation—on STARZ’s hit series, POWER. He has had lead roles on ABC’s LUCKY 7, this year appeared as Venezuelan President Francisco Suarez in the CBS hit series, MADAM SECRETARY, and has performed on CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION, LAW & ORDER, BURN NOTICE, NEW YORK UNDERCOVER, CSI: MIAMI, and NIP/TUCK, to name a few. He has performed in theater from roles in a one-man show, GROWING UP GONZALES to several classics, including ROMEO AND JULIET, RICHARD II, HENRY THE IV and A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM. But it is his commitment to the Latino independent filmmaking community that had him render roles with the utmost respect in films ranging from THE MIRACLE OF SPANISH HARLEM to the recent, STOCKROOM. PRIME LATINO MEDIA Padrino 2015.
J.W. Cortes @jwcortes
He is an award-winning actor, Marine combat veteran, singer, filmmaker, philanthropist and serves New York State’s Metropolitan Transit Authority Police Department (MTAPD) as an officer based in Grand Central Terminal. A good 2015 in which he’s played roles from Detective Carlos Alvarez on FOX’s hit prime-time series, GOTHAM to NBC's, THE BLACKLIST and THE MYSTERIES OF LAURA. He also helps raise awareness and funding for children’s charities, such as Autism Speaks and for veterans through the Bob Woodruff Foundation, to name a few. But when you least expect it, he’s at a reading in the East Village for a rising Latina playwright to introducing a docudrama on a Nuyorican female detective at the International Puerto Rican Heritage Film Festival.
