Established in 2018, LatinX in Animation is an organization created to bring together Latinx professionals already working in the industry and emerging talents seeking to start their careers.

Founder and president Magdiela Hermida Duhamel, whose credits include Trollhunters: Tales of Arcadia, Dragons: Race to the Edge, and Uglydolls, first saw the need for such a group while working at Dreamworks Animation. Duhamel and other Latinx co-workers would gather at lunch to connect and exchanges ideas, which proved to be an invaluable resource for the underrepresented artists.
