The Tú Cuentas! Cine Youth Fest (¡TÚ22! Film Festival) is now open for its second annual festival celebrating the vision of aspiring Latino filmmakers.

Presented by HITN-TV, ¡TÚ22! Film Festival promotes the work of emerging young Latino creatives in front of and behind the camera, offering them an online space in which to showcase their stories.

Providing young aspiring filmmakers with the opportunity to showcase their world views and efforts toward a more inclusive film industry, this film festival allows attendees to connect with a network of Latino role models who have been breaking down barriers for diverse communities, while paving the way for new generations of Latino creatives.

“We’ve seen an increase in the popularity and visibility of Latino/a stories at a national media level. Latino-focused films like “Coco,” “Rita Moreno: Just a Girl Who Decided to Go for It,” and “In the Heights,” as well as films with a Latino/a protagonist like “Beatriz at Dinner,” and the newly released “Hustle,” have shown that our stories are both powerful and popular,” said Luis Alejandro Molina, ¡TÚ22! Film Festival Director, in a statement. 

Requirements to Participate

To be part of ¡TÚ22!, either works of fiction or nonfiction—in English or Spanish—must feature a Latino/a in a position of creative leadership in front of or behind the camera.

This year's focus, for stories up to 30 minutes in length, is Representation. Entrants must complete and submit their work using one of these 4 themes:

  1. Participate: films focusing on involvement and showing people who take an active role in improving the world around them.
  2. Prosperity: films that define success or underscore the barriers preventing it.
  3. Collaboration: films highlighting the power of working together, showing what can be accomplished when people unite and support one another.
  4. Wellness: films that explore the importance of self-care – nurturing mind, body, soul, and community to live a fulfilling life.

Latino Representation in the Media

According to figures socialized by the organization of the festival, an investigation by the Latino Donor Collaborative indicates that Latinos represent only 5.5% of the total media, despite the fact that they comprise almost 20% of the U.S. population.

For his part, Molina underlined: “Latinos remain grossly underrepresented in the film community. Although Latinos buy 30 percent of all box office tickets, they hold leading roles in less than 5 percent of all films. Our goal with ¡TÚ22! Film Festival is to change that by giving young people a place to share their vision and tell their stories to a wider audience — and repeat our mantra — Representation Matters.”
