Samantha Rae Lopez

Program Coordinator- Austin
San Antonio native Samantha Rae Lopez moved to Austin in 2008 and has been working in production management within the Austin film community including feature films and television projects.  Samantha graduated from Full Sail University on Orlando, Florida with a Bachelor’s Degree in Film Production in 2008.
Samantha has also taught filmmaking to youth during various film camps and summer programs in collaboration with other Austin based non-profit organizations such as Femme Film Texas, Austin Film Society and most recently, Austin Film Festival.  Samantha is currently volunteering at Cine Las Americas and is producing independent films.
The new Program Coordinator is excited to expand her teaching skills while empowering other women and girls in the Latina community.
“Latinitas is the type of organization I wish I had when I was growing up.  The combination of leadership development and creative encouragement to young Latina women is what has made Latinitas so unique.  It is inspiring to see how the team of club leaders, board members, staff and volunteers have played such an integral part in establishing and cultivating such an amazing program.  I’m happy to be a part of this team and look forward to meeting all of the Latinitas!”
