Southern California is home to both the largest motion picture industry in the world and the largest Latino population in the nation. So it would seem natural that there would be lots of contact between these two groups. But that hasn't been the case, which is where the Latino International Film Festival comes in.

The Mexican film industry is reemerging from a lengthy dry spell with witty, smart and sophisticated films that have broken box-office records at home--a promising and surprising development that's being spotlighted this week at the third annual Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival. "There is a new optimism and a lot of young people are really working hard to enter the business," said Sergio Arau, whose animated short "The Wall" will unspool at the festival, which starts today.

I was delighted to read that Hollywood is (again) realizing the significance of the Latino moviegoing population ("Hollywood Finally Gets Its Spanish Lesson," by Amy Wallace, June 28). As someone who presumably will be on the receiving end of all the "niche marketing" to be unleashed in the apparently very near future, let me put in my two centavos worth of advice to the studios. Beware of marketing experts who speak knowingly of "the Latino market." You would have to tie me to the rack to define the term "Latino," and I've been one all my life--except during the time I was a Hispanic, but that was in New York, so perhaps it was a different niche.
