NALIP 2012: Diverse Voices, Universal Content is presented by Time Warner, Inc. and the National Latino Media Council. NALIP will host the USA's only annual gathering of top level Latino executives, content makers and game changers in the Latino media field. This dynamic and star studded weekend includes keynotes, plenaries, 'Conversations With,' workshops and networking events. The conference begins Friday, with keynote speaker, film director, screenwriter, producer, Robert Rodriguez. Saturday's keynote speaker will be Universal Studios' President and COO Ron Meyer.
In addition to engaging Hollywood's elite, NALIP also brings together the industry's current trendsetters. This will be exemplified in two very special sneak preview screenings during the conference. Friday night, the Sundance smash hit FILLY BROWN will be shown at Universal City's AMC Theatres. Following the screening, directors Youssef Delara and Michael T. Olmos, producer Amir Delara, and cast members Gina Rodriguez, Lou Diamond Phillips, Chrissie Fit, Emilo Rivera and Danny Mora will participate in a Q&A session. The second private screening and Q&A will be held Saturday afternoon for the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie of the week "Firelight." "Firelight" is directed by Darnell Martin and written by NALIP mentor of acclaimed LA MISA LUNA fame, Ligiah Villalobos.
Furthering the tradition of celebrating Latino visionaries, NALIP will host a red carpet gala honoring one of only eight living performers who has won entertainment's grand slam of the industry's most prestigious awards: The Oscar, The Emmy, The Tony and The Grammy - the inspirational and magnanimous, Rita Moreno. Ms. Moreno will receive NALIP's highest honor, the Lifetime Achievement Award. Additional media luminaries being honored at the annual gala include former Nosotros President and current Velasco & Associates President, Jerry Velasco who will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award for Advocacy, and the Estela "Rising Star' Award winners Patricia Martinez de Velasco, Erin McGinnis and Ari Palos, who will be awarded a $7,500 grant endowed by the McDonalds Corporation.
The Conference will also include a special "ActorSummit", and the eighth annual Latino Media Market. Executives from Time Warner, HBO, You Tube, Google, Sony, ABC/Disney, NBC, CBS, PBS, Fox, SAG, AFTRA, MPW, WGA, ITVS, CNN, HGTV, Travel Channel, TruTV, Mun2, Hallmark Hall of Fame and many others are scheduled to attend and participate!
We hope to see you there!
