The creative film folk some way south of Hollywood are given the chance to shine at this enticing celebration of Latin American cinema.
Now in its ninth year, the programme of films is as diverse as ever, with documentaries, feature films and shorts all jostling for attention. Covering everything from tragedy to comedy, the cutting edge film screenings are also raising valuable cash for the underprivileged of Latin American nations.
A wide range of directors, actors and other talent are at hand to explain themselves during various talks, Q&As, workshops and sessions.
Highlight of the season is Carlos Sorin’s latest feature film, The Window (La Ventana).
