NWA Daily

Ten Emmy Awards and 36 nominations later, Mario Troncoso is making waves in NWA as Director of Film and Media Ecosystems at CACHE. In 2020, Troncoso moved from Austin, Texas, to Northwest Arkansas. Since then, he was worked on numerous projects including producing and directing OZCast, an online creative variety show featuring Arkansas and Heartland artists, places, and cultures.

  • How would you describe living in NWA to someone thinking about relocating here? "Northwest Arkansas is a great place to live and an ideal location for remote workers and creatives. The arts and culture along with the beautiful and never-ending trails are transforming the region very quickly and it makes it very attractive for many people like myself," he said in an interview with FindingNWA.

  • The director also mentioned that he is a frequent at Onyx Coffee lab, enjoys shopping at the Farmer's Market on Saturday mornings, and loves to spend time on the Buffalo River.

  • When asked about the future of NWA, Troncoso believes the area has serious potential. "In terms of film and media in Northwest Arkansas, we have an opportunity to create a very unique and inclusive ecosystem. The potential for economic development for artists and entrepreneurs is huge." Troncoso continues, "My main goal in life is to give more than I take. Most of the work that I’m doing in the region serves the community, especially the creative community. I’m here to learn from them."
