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 was founded in 1986, by Sharon Mújica. Since 2008 the festival has been directed by Miguel Rojas-Sotelo sharing both classics and new releases from different genres of a rich and prolific Latin American cinema tradition. The Festival invites filmmakers from many of the 26 countries of the region, it has shown films in 13 languages, 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 screened films on issues such as migration, globalization, and new political landscapes in the Americas.

We have decided. The 35 edition will be an homage of the best Latin American films produced in the past 35 years and shown at the NCLAFF. And it will be virtual (due to the current events).
