Director of Programming, NY Latino Film Festival
Juan is an independent film producer whose latest credit is Elliot Loves, an award winning feature film set for release in 2012 and was funded entirely independently. He has also written and directed the award winning short film Hero The Great and is currently adapting a young adult novel into a screenplay that he hopes will be his feature directing debut. Juan's greatest pride is being a founding member and Director of Programming for the HBO New York International Latino International Film Festival. He is also a programming associate for Tribeca All Access, an initiative of the Tribeca Film Festival that aids and supports undeserved minorities in the film industry. He has recently started subjecting his filmmaker friends to his craziness in his blog, LatinoBuzz on IndieWire. Juan currently lives in an Empire State of Mind.
