About me and my journey

Loren Escandon is an award-winner AfroLatina actress and filmmaker passionate about portraying stories of women of color and exploring their realities as direct results of demographic, socio-economic, and cultural backgrounds.
Loren has extended experience in dance, theater, television, and film.
Loren's acting credits include Selena, 911, Gentefied, and SWAT and in the successful Netflix film Purple Hearts with Sofia Carson and Nicholas Galitzine. She is thrilled to participate in the upcoming series Casa Grande on Freevee, and the film Shirley, a Netflix biopic about Shirley Chisholm with Regina King.
Loren joined forces with a remarkable group of women filmmakers to create the anthology Give Me An A, a reactionary tale of the overturn of Roe v. Wade, writing and directing the fragment The Last Store, starring Gina Torres, Jason George, and Melinna Bodabilla.
Her previous work, Los Patines, a love letter to her mother's childhood experience as a domestic slave, has won Best Short at San Pedro International Film Festival, Best Director at NYC Downtown Short Film Festival, and Best Screenplay at the Panamanian International Film Festival/LA, among others. She is an Alum of the Warner Media and HFPA Tomorrow's Filmmaker's Today Class of 2021.
Loren has toured as a theatre-maker with her one-woman show, Montera, across sold-out venues in NYC, Madrid, Moscow, and La Habana, Cuba. She was awarded Best Performer for a Solo Show at the HOLA and ACE awards in 2013.
