Honoring Latina Filmmakers For International Women’s Day

Honoring Latina Filmmakers For International Women’s Day

In celebration of International Women’s Day on March 8th, Cuentame produced a video featuring screenwriter Josefina Lopez.

You can watch the video here.

In addition to writing the successful Real Women Have Curves, Lopez also produces the Boyle Heights Latina Independent Film Extravaganza. Cuentame’s Story Producer, Iliana Sosa gave some context for need for the festival and how it fits into International Women’s Day. “I think that BHLIFE is long overdue. Josefina started this because there wasn’t a space in which to celebrate and recognize the important work that Latina filmmakers are accomplishing. Is a Latina filmmaker a rarity? Some would like to think so–but this important festival dispels that myth and celebrates the unique stories and perspectives that Latina filmmakers are crafting on the big screen.”

Kudos to Cuentame and Lopez for bringing attention to the rich contributions of Latina filmmakers and for honoring International Women’s Day.
