Oaxaca Film Festival

October 6-13, 2017

Our screenplay, Nemesis, has been chosen as a Finalist in the 2017 Oaxaca Film festival!!


"I would rather work double shifts on Christmas, Thanksgiving, New Year's Eve and Day, and the Fourth of July if it meant I could have the week off of work to attend the Oaxaca Film Fest. Quite simply, it's what I look forward to the most each year. The films. The food. The people. The beautiful culture and city of Oaxaca. Even if they don't accept my script in 2017, I'll be back for Oaxaca Film Fest 8." 

Jonathan LaPoma (Screenwriter)
