Tamara Shogaolu selected for the Latinx Inclusion Fellowship Series

Tamara Shogaolu – winner of the HFM Works-in-Progress Award and Golden Calf nominee in 2019 – is selected for the Latinx Inclusion Fellowship Series by the Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival (LALIFF). She and four other directors will be mentored by professionals to create a short film, sponsored by Netflix.

Shogaolu has been selected with Lorena Durán, Justin Floyd, Kase Peña, and Monica Suriyage. They’ll each receive a grant of $20.000 to produce a short film, during which they will receive one-on-one coaching and have multiple networking opportunities. Netflix also supports them in producing the films, which will premiere at LALIFF next year.
