Alan Dominguez has been teaching film/video production at CEC since 2009 after spending 12 years as a Spanish teacher in Denver Public Schools and elsewhere. He has shown films in over 50 film festivals on three continents and in three different languages. He received his BA in Spanish and History from the University of Denver, his Master of Arts in Latin American Studies from the University of New Mexico and received his film training at the New York Film Academy where he learned the craft from some of the most dynamic instructors in the world. He was twice a finalist for the Sundance Institute’s Screenwriting Lab before turning to documentary work. His filmmaking and studies have taken him to the highlands of Guatemala, the Pueblos of Northern New Mexico, and several times to the US-Mexico border region, among others. In addition to working with the great students of CEC, he continues to develop and produce film projects independently and for networks such as PBS, HBO and Netflix.
