The name means deeply rooted. We truly believe that this statement holds immense power because our community is deeply ingrained in the very fabric of our nation. Through this festival, we aim to build strong relationships and networks while sending a crystal-clear message about the many ways our community has contributed and continues to contribute to the prosperous future of our nation. And all the while, we remain connected to our own cultural identity, never forgetting where we come from. The Latinx House has built a 10 year vision for the Festival to create a clear and robust place to celebrate and contemplate Latinx/e politics, arts, and culture. This Festival comes on the heels of annual successful events at The Sundance Film Festival, SXSW, and the Oscars.
The Latinx House is a gathering place for people who appreciate and support the Latinx community and who celebrate Latinx excellence in film and entertainment. It is also a space to discuss pressing societal issues and the content creation related to these stories. It provides engagement, activation and community building opportunities. The Latinx House is also creating pipeline projects, developing content, and engaging in advocacy to further the interests of the Latinx/e community, while building bridges, power and solidarity. The Latinx House was founded by social entrepreneur and activist Mónica Ramírez, filmmaker and activist Alexandra Martinez Kondracke, and producer and entrepreneur Olga Segura.
