The National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) and About…Productions will present the 7th annual Latino Scene Showcase on Wednesday, June 26, 2019, which will highlight six short scenes written, performed and directed by Latinos. 400+ entertainment industry executives, talent representatives, and casting directors are expected to attend the event. Executives will watch and analyze the scenes, and following the performances, will connect and network with the participants.
The goal of the showcase is for participants to establish relationships with key industry executives and ultimately break into network television.
The Latino Scene Showcase was created seven years ago to address the long-standing and overwhelming absence of Latino creatives in the entertainment industry.
The artistic vision of the showcase will be developed and overseen by
Theresa Chavez, producing artistic director of About…Productions and the showcase’s first ever female artistic director.
