Josefina Lopez    

Having had over 40 professional productions of her plays shown throughout the United States, Josefina Lopez is one of today's preeminent Chicana writers. She has written such plays as Simply Maria, Or the American Dream, Confessions of Women From East L.A. and Real Women Have Curves. She is the co-screenwriter of the movie version of Real Women Have Curves, which garnered much acclaim, including at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival where the film won the "Audience Award" and a "Special Jury Award for Acting." Currently, Josefina is working on a screenplay for HBO titled Loteria for Juarez, as well as a pilot she created for Showtime called Macarthur Park. This summer, she makes her directorial debut with ADD Me to the Party, an original comedic screenplay she wrote about three Latinas addicted to adrenaline who drive around in an Impala looking for the next distraction. When she is not busy writing, acting, or directing, Josefina teaches playwriting and screenwriting to local youth and Latino adults at Casa 0101, her theater/art space in Boyle Heights. She has an MFA in screenwriting from the prestigious UCLA Film and Television school. Josefina was born in San Luis Potosi, Mexico, is happily married and has a baby.


Josefina was the cover story for the December 2002/January 2003 issue of the prestigious Writers' Guild magazine "Written By," entitled Real Women Have Courage.

Josefina and Co-Writer George LaVoo won the "Humanitas Award for Screenwriting."

Josefina was awarded a "Screenwriting Fellowship" by the California Arts Council for 2001.
