Metropolitan New York’s only monthly series for 
Latino multimedia-makers & actors

Join us at the
Tuesday, September 23, 2014, 6-10pm

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

Everyone wants to soar. Actors yearn for it all: theater, film, television, commercials and voice-overs for animation. Filmmakers want that opening aerial scene that transports the audience. For Hispanic Heritage we celebrate those working and aiming for higher ground. Hear from those that have done it, how they continue to do it and what creative resourcing pays the bills within their artistic realm. Learn how three best friends put their heads and experience together, forging a new company to fill a void and how they’re in demand with new technology delivering top quality for compromised budgets. Join us for some networking, conversations and wine. Because this Hispanic Heritage, it’s not a whine fest, it’s about taking yourself and project to new heights ~ ¡sí se puede!
