Most of you screenwriters, directors and producers of Latino-themed films want to cast more Latinos in movies and the performing arts. While someday you won’t have to source specialty agencies or online databases to find undiscovered Latino talent, today you just might need to. Until there is an equal representation of Latino talent in the media, filmmakers shall continue to scour the nation and beyond in order to discover the next rising Latino star.
