Cine Latino Film Festival
Returning for a fifth year, this November 16-19, 2017, Cine Latino is among the key showcases of Spanish-language and Portuguese-language cinema in the United States. This year, screenings and events will take place at the Film Society’s hub, the St. Anthony Main Theatre in Downtown Minneapolis MN, as well as at the Capri Theater in North Minneapolis, Metropolitan State University’s Film Space in St. Paul and in community centers within predominantly Spanish-speaking neighborhoods.
Cine Latino 2017 will offer another rich tapestry of stories from across the vast cultural, social and historical landscape that is Latin America and the Iberian Peninsula, taking us on a journey across geography, history, age, gender, social and political issues and the complexities of human relationships. The 2017 showcase will have a focus on Mexican cinema.
Cine Latino 2017 will be an opportunity for our anticipated 5,000 audience members to view some of the best Latin American and Iberian films being made today, meet and connect with talented visiting filmmakers from those regions, and participate in a variety of engaging film-related events: workshops, panels and parties, with great food and music to round out the experience. The results will be stunning.
We are delighted to announce that visiting artistic director Hebe Tabachnik will once again curate the program. Tabachnik, who hails from Argentina, programs Spanish-language film for festivals around the world. The full Cine Latino 2017 slate will be announced in mid-October so stay tuned!
Cine Latino is presented by the Film Society of Minneapolis St. Paul, Minnesota’s leading non-profit exhibitor of international independent cinema. Our mission is to foster a knowledgeable and vibrant appreciation of the art of film from around the globe and its power to inform and transform individuals and communities.
