In partnership with:
Join Young Professionals of the Americas (YPA) for an afternoon with Brooklyn Film Festival’s Feature Narrative Programmer Emilia Ferreira and Kino Lorber Inc's Vice President of Marketing and Publicity Rodrigo Brandão as they discuss their perspectives on films from North and South America and the cultural interchange between Latin American and U.S. perspectives. What does it mean for a film to be from “the Americas” and how does this impact programmers’ selection processes? Directors Catherine Eaton (The Sounding), David Bly (Sweet Parents), Rodrigo Reyes (Lupe Under the Sun), and Fernando Fraiha (El Revenge) will share their perspective on this topic as well as where films contemplating this cultural intersection will be featured after the festival circuit.
