MPI ORIGINAL SHORT SCORES ANOTHER WIN AT UCLAX
MPI Original short film Gringa has enjoyed dozens of screenings around the country. In the past few weeks, we’ve proudly screened it at the Fort Myers Independent Film Festival on April 25th, the Mexican Consulate in Los Angeles as part of the Immigrants Arts Series on April 25th, and the UCLAxFilmFest on May 4th. At the UCLAxFilmFest, director Claudia Murray won Best Director for her work on the short.
This adds to an impressive track record of wins, including a Hollyshorts Monthly Screening Series Audience Award, Best Short at the Fayetteville Film Festival, the Audience Award at the Broad Humor Film Festival, and many more.
Gringa follows a Cuban American woman and her eccentric grandfather as they track down a rare car part for their family back in Havana. We are thrilled to have been a part of these fantastic events, which engage diverse film audiences and other creators.
