As part of the inaugural Festival of Cultures, an initiative by Sorbonne Nouvelle Université, I curated the film projection “Feminist Cinema of Latin America.” This dual program featured the films Missing Young Women by Lourdes Portillo (2001) and Journal Inachevé by Marilu Mallet (1982). The event took place on Monday, March 28, at the Condorcet campus, Paris Nord. Following the screening, a discussion was held in the presence of director Lourdes Portillo and two distinguished guests: Anna Dodier (Panorama del cine colombiano) and Mon Ross (Cinéma de Femmes).Watch our panel discussion here!
In 2021, I curated the cycle “Mexican Women Filmmakers: The Female Gaze” for Labo CinéMédias and Espacio México (Consulado de México en Montréal). This celebration showcased the talent of a new generation of filmmakers dedicated to authentic audiovisual representation of contemporary Mexico. Through their lenses, we explored intimate and universal stories of indigenous, LGBT+, Afro-Mexican, rural, and urban communities. See full program
During the early stages of Filminlatino, I contributed to the meticulous coordination of digitizing Mexican films for the platform’s catalog. Furthermore, I compiled a collection of choices obtained from well-known festivals such as Ambulante más allá and Animasivo, as well as from lesser-known authors like the work of Sara Minter. I helped launch Filminlatino’s blog by exploring new perspectives on Mexican cinema and following the great advice of Jauma Ripoll, Co-Founder I Head of Content and Development – Filmin Spain.

From 2014 to 2017, I played a pivotal role in establishing and leading the Mexican branch of OuiShare, a global community dedicated to exploring collaboration, new economies, and social innovation. I programmed the inaugural Latam Summit in Mexico City, supported by AECID through the Centro Cultural de España en México. Additionally, I coordinated a conference on the Platform Coop movement, showcasing the German experience in Mexico during the Año Dual Alemania – México, led by the Goethe Institut Mexiko. Leveraging our community’s support, we organized various events, including circles, university tours, talks, and workshops.
