A big winner out of Filmmaker Mag's 2009 list of 25 New Faces of Indie Film is CineVegas. Three of the twenty-five filmmakers premiered their pic at this year's event -- Frankie Latina ("Modus Operandi"), Jeff Mizushima ("Etienne!" -- pictured above), and Asiel Norton ("Redland").
I'd even add a 26th from the CineVegas lineup -- Kyle Patrick Alvarez, whose assured drama, "Easier with Practice," (below) won the fest's top award. Check out Cinematical's review.
