"Luminarias" Illuminates LatinoLA 10 Years Later

Ten years ago, was a fledgling website with a singular mission: To be the local go-to website to promote Latino arts, entertainment, culture and community, in the words of the writers, artists, musician and more who lived it.

Also ten years ago, a group of filmmakers released a feature movie that was as groundbreaking as it was entertaining. That movie was "Luminarias", written by Evelina Fernandez, directed by Jose Luis Valenzuela and starring a slew of outstanding Latino talent.

They're celebrating the 10th anniversary of the release of "Luminarias" on Saturday, August 20 with a VIP reception and viewing at the L.A. Theatre Center. We are lucky to have one pair of tickets to give away.

Here's how to win: Send an email to, with "Luminarias" as the subject, and tell us why you enjoyed the movie or why you really want to see it. Simple, eh? Best response wins. Good luck! The winner will be announced on the LatinoLA Newsletter next Thursday, August 19. Still haven't subscribed? Go here.
