Cardoso named to motion picture academy board

Patricia Cardoso, a professor in UC Riverside’s Department of Theatre, Film and Digital Production, has been elected to the director’s branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Board of Governors.

Cardoso is the first Latina to be elected to that group, according to a statement on the university’s website.

“I’m excited to begin this three-year term as an academy governor,” Cardoso said in the statement. “I want to work to advance the excellence of cinema and the intentional use of the power of cinema towards a more inclusive, creative, and peaceful world.”

The 55-member board recently elected five first-time members to the directors branch.  Cardoso was one of those appointees.
