Avenida Productions, a North Hollywood provider of entertainment services and production space to independent filmmakers of color, women and the LGBTQ+ community, appointed former Warner Bros. Entertainment executive Susan Steen to its advisory board.

Steen worked for the Burbank entertainment company for 31 years, most recently as executive vice president of worldwide theatrical marketing.

Steen said that she was interested in joining the Avenida board because of how the company’s founders, Chief Executive Fanny Veliz Grande and Chief Operating Officer Nelson Grande, came up with their own concept of creating inclusion in an industry where there are not a lot of opportunities for Latinos and many other groups of people.
