Marvel Studios Executive to Deliver Keynote Address at 8th Annual Archer Film Festival
Victoria Alonso, Executive Vice President of Production for Marvel Studios, will deliver the 2019 Archer Film Festival
's keynote address on Wednesday, May 22.
Archer students organize the Archer Film Festival every year in hopes of empowering female filmmakers. The organizers' goal is not to exclude men but rather to include women. Submissions are open to all high school student filmmakers.
Nearly 700 student films from 57 countries were submitted to this year's festival, which will be held at the Writers Guild Theater in Beverly Hills.
As a Latina and a female senior executive, Ms. Alonso has become a strong voice in Hollywood and a tireless advocate for progress. She was the Executive Producer of "The Avengers" in 2011 and has since served in that role for many major Marvel movies, including "Captain America," "Black Panther," and the recently released "Avengers: Endgame."
Past Archer Film Festival keynote speakers have included "Legally Blonde" novelist Amanda Brown, Director JJ Abrams, and Producer Kathleen Kennedy.
