Hosted by Teatro LATEA, Open Screen (OS) is a screening forum for all submissions.  This openness is enhanced by then sitting each filmmaker in the “hot seat” for 3 minutes of unfiltered feedback from a live audience. After screenings, filmmakers and their guests are invited to a live interview and discussion with industry professionals, to be conducted by veteran actor Tony Ruiz.
