Manuel Fernandez – social media coordinator

A Miami native, Manuel Fernandez is a filmmaker currently attending the film production program at Miami Dade College. Awarded his Associate in Arts degree in May 2021, Manuel has been named to the MDC Dean’s List four times. He intends to complete his education at the College and plans to branch out and establish a presence in the Florida Film scene as he finishes his studies.

Manuel became interested in Feature Florida Partnerships because of his growing awareness of the lack of film and TV productions in his home state of Florida. FFP’s ambitions to maintain talent and propel its status in the industry through their own means aligns with Manuel’s vision. He views Florida as an exceptional candidate to host productions given its cultural and racial diversity, landmark cities, and ever-growing art scene in South Florida. Manuel will be responsible for restructuring FFP’s social media platform and, by expanding the organization’s outreach and presence online, helping to ensure FFP’s participation in securing the future of Florida’s film industry.
