The Director

Colombian born Diana Uribe has an eye for discovering new faces and talent. She has booked thousands of performers to appear on TV, films, commercials, stage, music videos and print ads. Among her many casting credits is 'The Hero: Love Story of a Spy', the most expensive Bollywood movie ever made starring Priyanka Chopra. 

As a child, Diana moved to the projects in Toronto not speaking a word of English. At an early age she had a love of the arts and dreamt of being a star. Not being able to afford training made her unstoppable at pursuing her many dreams. At 19 she opened a talent agency and booked talent to work on TV including ‘Street Legal’ and ‘Kids in the Hall’ and on movies starring Liza Minnelli, Keanu Reeves, Michael J Fox and Ice-T, to just name a few.  

Diana is a positive role model for people from all walks of life especially today's youth. She is a guest speaker at schools and has taught industry workshops at The Learning Annex, at the On The Move conference and for the NBA’s Raptors dancers. She stage managed a concert with Destiny’s Child where she also booked Cristina Aguilera's DJ. Diana was a consultant on a National Film Board dance documentary and has sat on the Board of Directors at Dance Ontario. She adjudicates talent competitions and hosts events that are the talk of the town.

Diana is a philanthropist who loves to give back. The Angeles de Medellin Foundation is very dear to her heart. She earned her wings donating, volunteering and teaching English. You may see her all glam on the red carpet one day, but you will also see her up in the mountains changing the lives of the poor and displaced on another. She has personally distributed sleeping bags to the homeless on very cold days. Diana has also been an advocate and donated time and/or money to Artists Against Racism, St. Christopher’s House, The Red Cross and The Salvation Army. Needy kids & their families received Christmas gifts, school supplies and shoes in a backpack. 

A portion of the proceeds of Be Discovered workshops have been donated to the Make A Wish Foundation and gifts given to Santa’s Kidz. Free dance workshops for the Boys and Girls Club of America’s conference for hundreds of under privileged kids were also donated. 2015 was Be Discovered's 'Year of Hope' to support their own Talent Liaison Laura Foster and her cancer fight.  Be Discovered backed the Actors Fund Broadway concert "Bombshell" and flew Laura in to New York to attend this gala along with all the stars.
