Coming to Venice, CA, Labor Day Weekend

We’re happy to share that MPI Original dramedy short, Gringa, has been selected for screening at the 13th Annual Broad Humor Film Festival, which will take place from August 30th–September 2nd in Venice, California. 

Gringa, co-written by MPI-supported filmmaker Claudia Murray and MPI’s vice president of talent development, Lana Link, depicts the story of a Cuban-American woman on a frenzied mission to find a rare car part before she and her abuelo leave for a trip to Havana. Last weekend, it won Best Short Narrative at the Anthem Freedom Festival in Las Vegas.

Founded in 2006, the Broad Humor Film Festival is world's first and only film festival dedicated to showcasing comedic films written and/or directed by women filmmakers.
