1. Welcome and Introduction, 6pm
2. New Cultural Frontiers, 6:30pm - 8pm 
Today, what defines our Latinidad exceeds the traditional categories imposed on the Latino identity. This session will ask participants to question how we define ourselves, how we are defined by others, who validates our authenticity, and what it means to appropriate the label.
Day 2: Saturday, June 22, 10:30am - 8pm
Furman Gallery, adjacent to the Film Society of Lincoln Center's Walter Reade Theater
165 West 65th Street (between Broadway and Amsterdam Ave.)
3. Access and Accessibility, 10:30am - 12pm
Who has access to have a film career? Who and how a filmmaker gets validated to talk about our communities? How can we democratize access to filmmaking? How can the audience get access to the work of Latino multimedia makers.
4. Storytelling and Narratives, 1pm - 3pm
What stories are we telling? Are we pushing the envelope? Are we limited by our own narratives? Are we limiting the stories Latinos versus Latin Americans can tell? How are we being represented and who is representing us? Who is deciding our storylines and our aesthetics?
5. Validation and Audience Development, 3pm - 5pm
Who’s validating our cinema? Who’s documenting our cinema? How are we programming our films and directors? How can we create more critical content on the films and filmmakers? How to engage audiences to our work in a more effective way.
6. Plenary Session: Community Building, 5pm- 7pm
7. Refreshments, 7pm - 8pm
