How do we open the doors to people who would like to work in this economy and don’t have access? I took the job with profound respect for the mayor’s emphasis on diversity.

I will not neglect the Hollywood element. I will never neglect our largest part of the portfolio. [However,] independent film needs to be part of the plan. The independent filmmakers are really moving the dial and will be the engine for the future. –CYNTHIA LÓPEZ
