up‐and‐coming filmmakers from the Latino community by showcasing their short films before international film directors, producers and industry members.”

¡Sorpresa! is kicking off its search for submissions of original 3 to 5 minute short videos or films depicting a world of each participant’s design reflective of Hispanic culture. Five finalists will be
selected and screened at the Hamptons International Film Festival. The competition winner will be announced at the Festival and featured in the original program Luz, Camara, ¡Sorpresa!, which
