Women in Film-Making

Virginia Diaz Laughlin: Encouraging women to pursue their dreams in the film industry

For more than 30 years, Virginia Diaz-Laughlin has broken barriers in the film and video industry in production management. She has worked on commercials, feature films, television movies and syndicated shows. Feature film credits include “Rushmore,” “Apollo 13,” and my personal favorite “Selena.” Her most recent accomplishment is “Truly Texas Mexican: A Native Culinary Heritage in Recipes,” her first feature documentary as a Producer. The film has been broadcast on PBS and is available for streaming. Join Ramona today as she and Virginia discuss the experiences of women working in film and video production. Virginia’s stories will encourage women and young filmmakers of color to pursue their dreams despite the barriers. A San Antonio native, Virginia is currently based in Houston, Texas.
