Re: “Opinion: A Local Filmmaker Says Indies Need to Lead Hollywood to Diversity

I agree with you 100%. Speaking from my own experience as independent film actor and a Latino, I spent four years auditioning and submitting for various roles that I never got a call back for. Despite attending weekly professional acting classes for several years, the excuse always was that I didn't FIT the part.
Out of frustration with lack of diversity in independent films, I quit acting all together. Diversity seriously needs to start in the independent film industry and not in Hollywood. After all , Hollywood film-makers and writers often attend independent film festivals such as Sundance, etc. seeking both new talent and ideas.
