This past weekend I had the distinct pleasure of attending the Tribeca Film Festival celebration for Latino Filmmakers at Tenjune in the meatpacking district. Our good friends at Heineken joined the Tribeca Film Institute in honoring the first-ever Heineken VOCES grant winners, Cristina Ibarra for her documentary Las Marthas and Diego Araujo for his narrative titled Feriado. Heineken VOCES is a grant designed to encourage U.S. Latino filmmakers to define, explore and create stories that reflect the dynamism and diversity of our culture.
Much love also goes out to the entire East Willy B family who were in attendance at the event. Don’t forget to support their Kickstarter campaign. By the way, check out the awesome Babygirl, which features newcomer Yainis Ynoa as well as our good friend Flaco Navaja among others.
