A unique film festival is inviting Latinos to share in the opportunity with the NUoV!
In the Spotlight today is the 1st Annual Nu Point of View: The Emerging Latino Filmmakers Project (NuPOV), a nationally televised program featuring the best and brightest Latino talent. There’s no better way for writers, directors, and producers to get themselves discovered than to put their talents on full display. NuPOV provides that opportunity – and a national platform on which to make remarkable dreams come true. NuPOV carries no submission fees, and asks only that applicants submit unforgettable, thought-provoking, English language films that best demonstrate their unique voices. A panel of industry screeners will review all submissions, and final selections will be made by a panel of celebrity jurors – including Gregory Nava, Frida Torresblanco, and Michael Olmos – then broadcast across the entire country with host Gina Rodriguez on NUVOtv, an exciting TV network for the best in Latino independent cinema. Selected films-and profiles of their respective filmmakers-will air December 2014 and will re-air on NUVOtv on a quarterly basis. Films that are selected and exhibited in full will each earn their creators acquisition license fees of up to $3,000 USD a piece.
