This is a personally curated writer/director talent roster of diverse and compelling voices doing their thang in the indie world, all whom if given a shot would write and shoot the shit out of any real big budget studio backed project.  These are filmmakers whose films I’ve seen and scripts I’ve read, who I appreciate, believe in, and recommend.  For now I’m focusing on American Latinos who have written and or directed narratives (fiction) features or shorts.  From emerging, to recognized, these voices demonstrate artistic innovation and tenacity to create and sustain their individual American Latino identity as it informs their art no matter what.  I’ve linked each name to the most appropriate bio/project website.  If there is not a good link I’ll add a few words of how I know and what I like about their work.  Again, this is only my personal curated list which I’ll be continually updating as I discover more and more.
