Our team

Sarah Bingham Miller, Executive Director
Sarah’s interest in film began as a graduate student studying Soviet avant-garde film. She’s been involved with Latin American film since 1999, when she began working with a New York-based Latin American film festival. It was her experience promoting this festival that led her to collaborate with Vanessa Erazo in creating Cinelandia, with the aim of providing a nationwide platform for fans and scholars of Latin American film.  Nueva Vista is a way for her to address other needs of the Latin American and U.S. Latino film community.
