NUVOtv is accepting submissions for its first independent film showcase, Nu Point of View: The Emerging Latino Filmmakers.
The first English language network for today’s modern Latinos is embarking on a search for the next group of rising film experts. The Nu Point of View Film Festival, set to be televised in March of 2014, will air the best features, documentaries and short films from up-and-coming filmmakers whose ideas integrate stories of Latin@s today. NUVOtv is empowering Latino content makers with the tools, voice, and audience they need to tell their stories
According to Popcorn People: Profiles of the U.S. Moviegoer Audience, a Nielsen report released earlier this year, Hispanics represented the largest racial or ethnic group of moviegoers, yet remain underrepresented when it comes to on-screen portrayals and behind-the-camera creative control. This could be YOUR chance to make a difference.
Share your “Nu Point of View” – your passion project, content by Latinos, for Latinos. If selected, your work could be seen by millions of viewers on national television AND you could be eligible to win cash prizes of up to $3,000.
Submit today! The official deadline is November 15, 2013. For more information on the film festival, eligibility requirements, and terms and conditions, visit http://filmfest.mynuvotv.com/.
