Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival Brings Back Inclusion Fellowship for Third Year

The Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival (LALIFF) announced today that it is accepting submissions for its third annual LALIFF Inclusion Fellowship.

With support from Netflix’s Fund for Creative Equity, the program, which aims to champion underrepresented filmmakers within the Latino community, will award five Indigenous Latino and five Afro/Black Latino directors with a $30,000 grant. Their films will also premiere at LALIFF 2023.

In addition to the production grants, the selected Fellows will receive one-on-one mentorship from industry leaders on production, distribution, networking opportunities and more. Netflix mentors will also offer support throughout the development of their films.
