Amaris Sanchez: Quentin Tarantino because his movies like “Kill Bill” are so exciting and they have a cooler, older vibe to them.
Ivan Torres: I’d bring Christopher Nolan because his movies can be very inspiring. He’s able to unravel the stories in a way that isn’t predictable and there’s amazing soundtracks that come out on his movies.
Robert Babbit: I would bring any of the MGM film musical stars who are still alive. I think Jane Powell is. I was actually friends with Cyd Charisse for the last few years of her life, and she would have loved the festival. I’m sure the MGM stars would have a lot of great stories to tell. Another person to consider is Timothy Bottoms from “The Last Picture Show” and a really good idea would be to bring in Peter Fonda from “Easy Rider.”
Berlinda Cabazos: Eduardo Verástegui – he came out in “Bella.” He was also a producer in the movie. I like the film because the cinematography was great, the story was also really great and the actors did a great job at portraying the characters. They were very sincere.
Gitzel Moncivais: I’m between Quentin Tarantino and Christopher Nolan. I feel like Tarantino would be a better guest, though, just because he likes to talk a lot. I’d like to hear the story behind his films. If you watch his interviews, he’s just so eager to talk and so knowledgeable.
Lawrence Welsh: Mickey Rourke because he’s one of the great American actors, and certainly one of the great Irish-American actors that’s kind of been forgotten a bit, but he’s in the lineage of James Dean. We could bring him in for “Rumble Fish” and “The Pope of Greenwich Village” and a bunch of his other movies.
