Rio Rocket and Irene Jean Santos host the 2019 Katra Film Series Spring Edition
Spring was in the air as the Katra Film Series 2019 Spring Edition sprung into action on Wednesday, April 17th for a spectacular night of cinema, networking and after party awards ceremony.
Irene Jean Santos, a film and television actress as well, also returned to host with her vibrant personality as the pair kept the audience energized and invigorated throughout the evening's events.
The duo began hosting the event for the Season 8 Grand Finale and have since hosted all of Katra Film Series' events for 2019. As good friends and frequent acting partners their chemistry and comfort in working together is apparent.
Their promotional video for the Season 9 Premiere can be seen below:
The Katra Film Series screens just under twenty films per event on average in two separate viewing blocks at the Alamo Drafthouse Theater in Downtown Brooklyn. The "before party" red carpet event took place at the HiO store. The after party and awards ceremony took place at Vine BK (formerly Wine Legend) where Rio Rocket and Irene Jean Santos presented filmmaker Johnny Ventimiglia the Best Short Film award for Brookylino.
Rio and Irene are both thankful and honored to host the event, both expressing their gratitude to Geoffrey Guerrero, founder of Katra Film Series. The two actors have collaborated on a number of projects, most recently the short film Entanglement, produced by Anthony Dionisio (I Like To Play With Toys" Productions®)
