Joel M. Gonzales

Board President & Executive Director

“Our life is defined by our Impact – not by our Intentions.”

Joel M. Gonzales is an award-winning film producer.

I live by the servant leader mindset. I am an entrepreneur and an award-winning filmmaker with an extensive background in business, marketing, and film production. I have proudly served as the Executive Director and President of Nosotros for 10 years.

Since becoming President of Nosotros, I successfully led key initiatives that have resulted in Nosotros establishing itself once again as a present and active advocate and incubator for Latinos and other marginalized groups in entertainment; most recently, together with my executive team, we re-launched the prestigious Nosotros Golden Eagle Awards, first introduced by Nosotros founder Ricardo Montalb√°n on August 16, 1970 at the Hollywood Bowl. This ground-breaking and first of its kind “Latino” award show, was attended by with many iconic celebrity guest such as Desi Arnaz, Rita Moreno, Anthony Quinn, Lucille Ball, Charleston Heston, and even Frank Sinatra.
