During his presentation, he will be talking about the ins and outs of independent filmmaking as well as his film career, which includes a stint in Hollywood, where he worked with such notable names as Jim Carrey, Kirsten Dunst and Jay Leno.
Carlos’ films have been in several film festivals, including his short film, Dad’s Day, for which he won Top Applause and Rising Star.
