Critical Voices: The Importance of Film Critics of Color - Friday, June 23rd - Creators Studio 1
Vanessa Erazo has always been a big film fan. Growing up bilingual in California, she eventually discovered the rich variety of Latino films but noticed they were hard to find. The search for these movies led her to work for Latino film festivals in San Francisco, New York, and Mexico City. After receiving an M.A. in Latin American Studies from New York University, she served as the Documentary Programmer at the New York International Latino Film Festival and is now the Film Editor at Remezcla. She is also the co-creator of LatinoBuzz, a weekly column on Indiewire, and Co-Founder of Cinelandia, an online guide to Latino films playing across the U.S.
