"Hermano" to Open LA Latino Film Fest

Marcel Rasquin’s soccer drama “Hermano” will have its North American premiere at the opening night of the Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival on August 19. “Hermano,” about a pair of friends who compete for a spot on the Caracas Soccer Club, is the Venezuelan director’s first feature, and won a trio of prizes at the Moscow International Film Festival.

The festival also announced the schedule for its Hollywood Connect program, which provides a forum for filmmakers, financiers, creative talent and industry executives to meet and learn from each other. Panels include: “The Advantages of International Co-Production” (Aug. 20), “Before the Camera Rolls/Maximizing Your Tax Incentives” (Aug. 21), “A Guild Exploration” (Aug. 23) and “From Financing to New Media Distribution: Deconstructing Film” (Aug. 23).

Founded in 1997 by Edward James Olmos, this year’s festival runs through Aug. 25.
