NC Latin American Film Festival

FF POSTER 2014 2

The NC Latin American Film Festival celebrates the power and artistry of Latin America’s film and audiovisual production. Its mission is to provide a space in North Carolina for Latin American images, sounds, and stories to reach a wider audience. The Festival provides filmmakers the opportunity to showcase their work in a stimulating and community friendly context.

The Festival was founded in 1986, by Sharon Mujica and for more than two and a half decades has shared both classics and new releases from different genres of a rich and prolific Latin American cinema tradition. Beginning with only 3 films, the Festival has grown to encompass up to 16 campuses in the Triangle, Greensboro and the Charlotte areas, with up to 35 screenings. Since 2008 the festival has been directed by Miguel Rojas-Sotelo.

Audiences have been exposed to a wide range of critical and responsible narratives from Latin America and the Caribbean. The Festival has invited important filmmakers and directors from many of the 26 countries of the region, it has shown films in 13 languages (not only Spanish), and has become a bridge between universities and cultural centers in the region. In response to the demographic changes in North Carolina, the Festival has also screened multiple films and invited speakers on issues such as migration, globalization, and new political landscapes in the Americas.
