2019 Special Guest Robert Rodriguez

Robert Rodriguez is a film director, screenwriter, producer, cinematographer, editor, and musician. He is also the Founder and Chairman of El Rey Network, a 24-hour, English-language lifestyle network.

While a student at the University of Texas at Austin in 1991, Robert Rodriguez wrote the script to his first feature film while sequestered at a drug research facility as a paid subject in a clinical experiment. That paycheck covered the cost of shooting his film. He planned to make the money back by selling the film to the Mexican home video market.

The film, El Mariachi, went on to win the coveted Audience Award at the 1993 Sundance Film Festival and became the lowest budget movie ever released by a major studio. Rodriguez wrote about these experiences in Rebel Without a Crew, a perennial guide for the independent filmmaker.
