I believe it’s a great time for performers,” said Sanchez.

Indie Night Film Festival’s screening of Heroes promises an immersive experience for its audience and an opportunity to hear from one of Hollywood’s leading Latino voices.

“It’s not about the fame or money for me. It’s being able to live blissfully in this thing we call life. Empty your tank! When that day comes, be able to say… I tried and did it all. I emptied my tank. That is a successful life,” said Sanchez in his rise to successs.
