Join us for a conversation with Latina Casting Directors, Producers and Actresses about the changing roles Latinas play both on camera and behind the scenes. Where were we, where are we now, and where are we headed? What are the differences in how Latina identity is perceived? Who controls the future of roles for Latinas in TV and Film? Where do writers, producers, filmmakers, and actors stand in the creation of roles for Latinas that truly represent Latinx culture? What important roles are now filled by Latinas that were not filled by them before? What needs to change in the future? Let’s identify problems, successes and goals, and find ways of bringing more Latina voices forward in all aspects of expression.
