Join us at the
Wednesday, August 20, 2014, 6-10pm

A support network to advocate, promote & advance 
mainstream & Latino projects in English & Spanish.

Everyone has a dream. How can a child brought to the USA without papers who grows up loving their country, like any counterpart born here, risk being deported to a land they know not because of a lack in legal immigration status? Meet two filmmakers taking the issue of immigration dividing the nation and through narrative filmmaking successfully shine the spotlight on the painful ramifications experienced within their Latino community. As our community of Latino multimedia-makers and actors long for that hit film, TV series, webisodes or role, learn the road taken by these individuals in realizing projects within the world of independent production and prove that, with a strategic plan, dreams do come true.
