Latinx in Film Campaign – Paramount

“Latinos, Movie Watching, & Views on Representation in Film”

In April 2018, NHMC commissioned a poll, “Latinos, Movie Watching, & Views on Representation in Film.” Latino Decisions surveyed 423 adults in the United States who self-identified as Latino or Hispanic, with data collected from May 21, 2018 to May 29, 2018. The focus of the poll was to probe Latinos about their movie consumption patterns in the last 12 months, in theater and in home, views on Latino representation in film, and their willingness to act in response to poor representation. To view the full poll results, visit www.nhmc.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/LD_NHMC_Deck_1June2018-final.pdf.

On July 31st, NHMC and NLMC announced its campaign against Paramount Studios, for its shameful numbers when it comes to Latino employment, in front of and behind the camera.
