We are super excited to have "Mala," be selected to receive a Hollywood Foreign Press Association Fellows Fund grant. It is great to be acknowledged by such an amazing organization.
We had the most amazing time at the Austin Film Festival, from the people to the food. Our short film, "Mala," screened twice to an incredible audience.
Very honored to have received a 2015 National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts Grant/Scholarship. This foundation is very near and dear to me, as it helps promote Latino and Hispanic culture in the entertainment industry.
The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation is holding their latest Film Summit this November. Our film, "Memoria de Octavia," received a mention as part of the films sponsored by Sloan.

"La Reclusa," won best director's choice for student short film this weekend at Rincon International Film Festival; but the biggest prize was having my grandmother who turned 80 this weekend see my film on a big screen. Biggest gifts in life are family and friends.
I wrapped this weekend my 3rd year NYU graduate film. It was very intense but we made it. Amazing cast and crew.
I'm very honored to have received a BAFTA scholarship. I'm a huge fan of British Television and Film. I'm still in shock, apparently I was the first graduate student that has received this from BAFTA NY. It really is an injection of pure inspiration.
