Highlighting Latino Cinema Through Tú Cuentas! Cine Youth Film Festival

Championing youthful Latino filmmakers, the fourth annual Tú Cuentas! Cine Youth Film Festival promises to be bigger than ever. Hosted by HITN TV, this online event turns the spotlight on rising stars in the film industry.

From October 9th to 16th, the festival will go digital. Young filmmakers aged 16 to 26 will have an opportunity to showcase diverse films. The festival wraps up with the announcement of the winners on October 16th and awards $4,000, $2,000 or $1,000 to the top three films respectively, boosting their future projects.

More than a Film Festival – Engaging Events and Educational Outreach

However, the festival is more than just a film screening event. It goes beyond showcasing films and taps into the industry’s heart through initiatives like the Film Chat web series. In 30-minute segments, hosts and guests from the film and TV industry discuss various filmmaking aspects.

Moreover, Cafecitos is an engaging live segment on Instagram. It offers an intimate setting for discussing important industry topics over coffee. These 25-minute chats give viewers a chance to glean advice and inspiration directly from industry insiders.

In its attempt to nurture talent, the festival also runs Cortitos, a national film shorts contest. Targeted at middle school students, Cortitos coincides with Puerto Rican Heritage month. It aims to engage younger students in film and narrative storytelling.

Expanded Access and Participation Through the HITN Go App

The top 10 film entries will be featured on the HITN Go app. It doesn’t just provide them with a platform to showcase their work, it also introduces them to a broader content network available to HITN viewers.
