Pathways in LatAm: Latin@s are the Key • Pathways in LatAm: Latin@s are the Key
An acceleration of content and content consumption has catapulted studios and companies to launch entire new divisions and prioritization of their target audiences. Companies are evidently fine tuning their strategies with a goal in mind: capturing this multi-lingual, multi-cultural, and global audience. The executives on this panel will deep dive into the opportunities for writers, directors, and producers to streamline their creative and business efforts in packaging, pitching, and capitalizing on co-production deals and resources available within the Latin American market.
It is important to recognize the impact race and culture have had on sports through the past few decades. During this session, ESPN leaders will share their story of the making of the 30 for 30 film “The Dominican Dream." This film paints a portrait of Dominican immigrants in New York through the 1980s and 90s, as seen through the eyes of the youngest son in a loving family. He rises unimaginably high, only to be quickly cast aside as a failure. In this session, ESPN's storytelling will prove truly reflective of the immigrant experience and the impact of sports in the Hispanic Latino community.
With the demand for accurate representation at an all time high, this panel features an array of LGBTQI+ content creators who are successfully navigating the entertainment industry. We seek to facilitate a dynamic conversation on the state and importance of LGBTQI+ representation in the media.
