Report: HOLApanels event - GO WEST, YOUNG ACTOR
On Thursday, June 2, 2011 at 5:30pm, HOLA held a HOLApanels event in conjunction with the inaugural East Harlem International Film Festival (EHIFF) at the East Harlem Café. The event was called GO WEST, YOUNG ACTOR: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly of Being a West Coast or Bilingual Actor. HOLA Associate Director A.B. Lugo served as moderator and Luis Antonio Ramos; Selenis Leyva; Jorge Montenegro; and José Roldán, Jr. were the panelists. Special thanks go to Víctor Cruz of the EHIFF, Michelle Cruz (no relation) of the East Harlem Café and HOLA volunteers Diana Carolina González, María F. Nieto, Mónica Delgado and Laura Patalano. The free event was a total success, with a standing room only crowd in the beautiful, cozy café.
