Mario Diaz, Frameline43 Outstanding Partner Award Honoree

Frameline is proud to announce the creation of a new award this year in honor of the support of our many Festival sponsors, community partners, and LGBTQ+ leaders in our production of the Frameline San Francisco International LGBTQ+ Film Festival.

Our Outstanding Partner Award will be presented to an individual, company, or organization each year in recognition of exceptional contributions to Frameline's mission to change the world through the power of queer media.

We're proud to announce the recipient of the inaugural 2019 Frameline Outstanding Partner Award is Mario Diaz, Vice President of Community Relations, Senior Consultant Corporate Philanthropy and Community Relations with Wells Fargo & Company.

Mario joined Wells Fargo in 1989, and has held various positions within the Wells Fargo Foundation over the years.  Since 2003, Mario has managed the contributions programs for the Greater San Francisco Region. Prior to that, he managed philanthropy efforts in the Bay Area as well as volunteerism in Los Angeles Metro and Orange County.

Mario serves on the board of the Bay Area Gardeners Scholarship Foundation and on the advisory boards of the Richmond-Ermet AIDS Foundation, San Francisco Silent Film Festival and the San Francisco Greek Film Festival.  He has also served as a board member of AIDS Health Project, Arriba Juntos, Latino Community Foundation, National AIDS Memorial Grove, Northern California Grantmakers (NCG), Project Open Hand, and The Mexican Museum.

For over a decade Mario has worked with Frameline leadership to forge a strong and vital partnership between the Wells Fargo Foundation and the Frameline San Francisco International LGBTQ+ Film Festival. This year we honor Mario Diaz's extraordinary commitment to both the Bay Area LGBTQ+ and filmmaking communities.

Congratulations and great thanks to Mario Diaz.
