Guest speaker at TMU’s Films For Change

Poster for the course Films for Change in Hispanic Culture, with guest speakers Diana Sanchez, Rodrigo Barrios and Antonio Peláez Barceló.

On May 11, 2023, I’ll be a guest speaker in the course Films For Change in Hispanic Culture.

It’s a course supported by Toronto Metropolitan University (TMU) and directed by Enriqueta Zafra, Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures of the TMU.

I’ll be talking about journalism and cultural diversity in film festivals. With the participation of the students, we’ll look at how different journalists and different media talk about films spoken in Spanish at festivals like Cannes, Toronto, San Sebastian, or Sundance. And how can they apply their own visions and knowledge to their visit to Panama to talk about Panama International Film Festival.
