New York International Latino Film Festival Awards

The 8th edition of the New York International Latino Film Festival (NYILFF), the premier venue for Latino filmmakers and Latino-based content, concluded with some of the most exciting films in cinema, indelible red carpets events and remarkable attendance records. For eight years, the festival has sought out innovative works by emerging filmmakers to showcase Latino talent and culture both on and off screen.

NYILFF announced the 2007 winners at its Awards Night ceremony on Sunday, July 29, at Arena (135 West 41st Street). Awards were given out in five categories, and the winners were as follows:

Director Ilya Chaiken was the recipient of the Best Picture Award for her narrative feature, Liberty Kid-a heated drama depicting troubled, inner-city, teenage street life as it is impacted by the tragedy of 9/11. Chaiken was presented with a prize of $2,500 provided by HBO and an Avid Media Composer System provided by Avid.

NYILFF also honored Alexandre Fuchs' debut film Hijos de la Guerra (Children of the War) with Best Documentary. The film is the first feature-length documentary to tell the story of the world's largest and most violent street gang, the Mara Salvatrucha, also known as MS-13.

Second-time filmmaker Ciro Altabas received Best Short for DVD, which is a playful examination of the different features and functionalities of DVDs.

Both Ciro Altabas and Alexandre Fuchs were each awarded with an Avid Xpress Pro in addition to receiving $500.00 in Kodak Motion Picture Stock for their films.

Sergio Castilla received the Heineken Red Star Award for his direction of Take the Bridge, in which three suicidal teenagers find a strength and comfort through each other. This film's controversial subject matter is a testament to the type of thought provoking films the Heineken Red Star award recognizes. The Heineken Red Star Award is presented to a director whose film pushes the boundaries of creativity and provides a unique vision and execution. Heineken has also partnered with Variety Magazine and the Independent Film Channel (IFC) to bring well-deserved publicity and visibility to Heineken Red Star Award recipients and their films. Castilla received a crystal statuette created by Tiffany and Co., a two-page spread in Variety, and a trip to Los Angeles to meet with executives and network with other winners from the Red Star Award Program.

Will Fonseca's Rewind won Verizon's NYILFF On the Edge Short Film Award. The first-time audience award, which received more than 26,000 votes, was determined by tallying the total number of votes received both online at and via Verizon Wireless text messaging. Will received a Verizon Wireless 8830 Blackberry World Phone Edition.
