In November 2021, LatinX in Animation (LXiA), a signature program under the Latino Film Institute (LFI), announced its first-ever LXiA Spark Animation Grant.

Sponsored by Netflix, this program is designed to uplift the presence of Latinx animation filmmakers, offering a game-changing grant of $10,000 towards the development and production of an animated short film. Additionally, LXiA Spark Grant Fellows receive a series of professional development sessions and will be paired with an individual mentor. For its inaugural year, LXiA has named two filmmakers to receive this prestigious grant: Cecilia De Jesus and Anthony Gallego.
