Ever wonder who is behind the scenes of the Latino Film Market?
Meet the Latino Film Market Team
Arilyn Martínez Cora is the Founder of the Latino Film Market. The concept of Latino Film Market came from the idea of integrating Arilyn’s expertise in the process of filmmaking from pre-production, production, post-production, marketing and promotion. Once a year, Latino Film Market will organize a film market event for filmmakers who do not have movie distribution. This event will allow them to exhibit and sell their Latino films at a low cost. The funds they recover may then be used for their future film projects.
Arilyn is an entrepreneur, film writer, director and producer from Puerto Rico, with a prime interest in promoting and informing the community about the Latino entertainment world, in film, television and online platforms. Her roots are reflected in every one of the projects she embraces. She focuses on the empowerment of women, and education. Arilyn holds two Bachelor’s degrees in Theatre Arts from the University of Puerto Rico, and Film Production from Brooklyn College, New York City. Her short film The Texture of the Light has received several awards from the film festival circuit in the U.S. Tri-State Area. Currently, she is drafting a feature film.
Living in New York City for over six years has given her the opportunity to meet many different people from other countries. After attending several Latino events, she has come to the realization that many U.S. born Latinos, identify themselves as Latinos, as a result of their parents passing down their history, culture and traditions. One of her main interests is developing or identifying ways to preserve and promote the Latin American culture through educational venues, and the exhibition of films in the United States, and internationally.
