Kiki Melendez's "The Journey of a Female Comic/La Trayectoria de Una Comediante" Closes Broadway International Film Festival, Sunday, September 23, 2012

" A Unique Bilingual Docu-Comedy Showcasing Latinos in Hollywood"

The Broadway International Film Festival Los Angeles, which will be held on September 20-23rd will bring their four-day celebration of the arts and film to an end with the hilarious showing of "The Journey of a Female Comic/La Trayectoria de Una Comediante", produced and directed by Kiki Melendez and written by the comedian herself and Lyn McCullough.

"We chose Kiki's film to close the festival because besides being highly entertaining, motivational and educational, it is also a film that could become a classic look into our Latinos In Hollywood" said Emilio Vega founder of Arco del Triunfo Productions and Executive Director for BIFFLA.

The original Docu-Comedy takes you on a journey through the life of the amazingly talented and super hilarious, Kiki Melendez showcasing not only her triumphs and tribulations but walks through the life of all Latinos in Hollywood with cameos from Esai Morales, Lupe Ontiveros, Maria Conchita Alonso, Jacob Vargas, Nadine Velazquez, and The Dominican Obama, as well as classic stock footage of "Kiki desde Hollywood" that includes Aaron Spelling, Usher, Sofia Vergara, Halle Berry, Hugh Jackman, John Travolta, Shakira, Marc Anthony and much much more….

"This was an experiment for me and my company, a completely bilingual project which takes a hilarious look at the life and the journey of all Latinos in Hollywood… through my eyes," said Kiki Melendez "Everything that has ever happened to me, the good, the bad, the funny and the tragic".

The Broadway International Film Festival Los Angeles has grown immensely over the last six years attracting films from a truly diversified international platform ultimately gearing focus to promote art, culture and education within the community's youth.

The Journey of a Female Comic/La Trayectoria de una Comediante, whose executive producers also include Gloria Ortiz, David Albert Pierce, Gayle Gaston, Josefina Fernandez McEvoy and Producers Adriano Serafini and Jackie De Crystal with Co-Director Eric Crespo will have the honor of closing out the festivities of the BIFFLA.
