Hispanic Heritage Month
From September 15 through October 15, our nation recognized Hispanic Heritage Month. The MPAA took this opportunity to highlight some of the many Hispanic and Lantinx creators, innovators, and leaders who have contributed to our industry through their talent and work.
From Directors Alejandro Iñárritu and Andrés Muschietti to stuntwoman Alicia Vela-Bailey and Emmy winning actress America Ferrera, these trailblazers and talented individuals work on and off the screen to bring us our favorite films and TV shows.
See some of our highlights from Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram:
