Best Emergent Local Filmmaker

PJ Raval

By the time this sees print, the term "emergent" may be historical as regards filmmaker Raval, so swift is the man's trajectory. From stunning music videos for locals Mistress Stephanie & Her Melodic Cat and Little Stolen Moments to a series of subversive shorts with drag star Christeene to showcases at Cannes and Sundance and the feature doc Trinidad (co-directed with Jay Hodges) running on Showtime to his current cinematography for Kyle Henry's Fourplay, the award-winning movie man is more than ready for his close-up.
