Testimonials. What they have to say…

As an entertainment lawyer in Colombia it’s essential for me to gain up-to-date information on trends in the US legal system and business environment, to meet with colleagues abroad, and to create collaborations. My professional experience with the LATC US audiovisual industry program in Los Angeles was terrific.

Patricia Renjifo

Senior Partner, Ley en Movimiento - COLOMBIA

As the only participant from New Zealand in the 2015 LATC US Film Industry Program in Los Angeles, I was honored to represent my country. It was a highly rewarding personal and professional experience which yielded concrete results for my film projects, and also generated multiple contacts through networking with industry professionals in the American Film Market, and well as in our own LATC group.

Gabriel Ride

Director, Pageant Films - NEW ZEALAND

LATC created a unique program on the US audiovisual industry in L.A., in which I participated several years ago, and the BNDES has regularly enrolled members of its staff from the Culture, Entertainment and Tourism Dept. in the program.

Luciane Gorgulho

I am very impressed with the LATC programs in which I participated, both the Film Business School and two editions of the Los Angeles Intensive Industry Program. These programs had an important influence on my career and orientation of my company.
