We honored iconic Hollywood actor Pepe Serna at the Mello Center forthe Performing Arts. Our free festival reached 4,4761 people both on-line and in-person. We also worked with a cohort of four local emerging filmmakers through theCine Se Puede fellowship, an initiative to support them to pursue professionalcareers. We provided them with industry connections, workshops, mentorship andfunding. In May, we partnered again with the local school district to co-presentPVUSD's Oscars Night, showcasing the films of elementary and middle schoolstudents at the Mello Center.
