Sundance’s Fifth Annual Latinx House to Feature Artists From ‘Ponyboi,’ ‘In the Summers’ (Exclusive)

The 2024 edition of The Latinx House at Sundance will feature filmmakers and castmembers from many of the Latino-centered films screening at the festival.

“When we launched The Latinx House in 2019, we were committed to honoring the long legacy that Latinx creatives have built at the Sundance Film Festival,” co-founder Olga Segura said in a statement. “Over the last five years, we have built a home that’s welcoming and accepting of the journeys being told and inclusive of the leaders who are shaping our culture.”

Featured Sundance projects at Latinx House include anthology series God Save Texas, represented by director Iliana Sosa; short film Border Hopper, represented by filmmaker and star Gabriela Ortega; and U.S. dramatic competition entries Ponyboi, represented by director Esteban Arango and writer/star/producer River Gallo, and filmmaker Alessandra Lacorazza’s In the Summers. The latter will be feted at an invite-only party hosted by Acura at the Acura House of Energy.

Other Latinx House speakers include Center for Cultural Power president Favianna Rodriguez, Earthjustice vice president of litigation Andre Segura, Undocumented Tales filmmaker and actor Armando Ibañez, Luminate vice president of Latin America Felipe Estefan and Chispa senior director of brand marketing and head of brand Julia Estacolchic.

The increasing number of culturally specific houses at Sundance has come with more opportunities for allyship. After hosting events at its own space on Friday and Saturday, Latinx House will dedicate Jan. 21 to collaborations with other hubs, including IllumiNative’s Indigenous House, 3AD, Gold House and The Asian American Foundation’s Sunrise House and The Black House, as well as RespectAbility and the National Hispanic Media Coalition.

“It’s wonderful to return to Sundance after building this casa over the past five years,” Latinx House co-founder Mónica Ramirez said in a statement. “We have had the opportunity to witness increased representation at the festival, as well as in the industry, and we have witnessed a strong community form over all of these years.”
