New York City, NY – Rik Cordero’s coming of age drama Inside A Change won the 10th HBO New York International Latino Film Festival’s (NYILFF) Best Picture Award as the event drew to a close over the weekend. Lead Actor, Ephraim Benton, who accepted on behalf of Rik Cordero, was presented with prize money provided by HBO and the Best Picture trophy.

“I’m shocked that we won, considering all of the amazing films on the roster this year.” said Cordero. “We created a simple heartfelt picture about the importance of family and I think it’s something audiences strongly connect with during these tough economic times. Even if you strip away all the heavy grassroots promotion we did, the film follows the same basic principle: Tell a good story”.
