Cine Latino Crowdfund Campaign
Support Cine Latino today! Donate and create your own page to help reach our crowdfunding campaign goal of $10,000. Your support makes Cine Latino possible, and ensures a wide-ranging selection of films that highlight social, political, environmental justice and activism.
We are also immensely grateful to the individuals and community organizations collaborating with us to present Cine Latino each year, and want to thank our 2019 Cine Latino Co-Chairs Maria Antonia Calvo, Lili Hall and Paola Nunez, our Cine Global Advisory Group and our Major Sponsors Drumm/Knock, Mary Ingebrand-Pohlad for the inspiring enthusiasm and energy they bring to the program.
We see these growing partnerships with so many representatives of the diverse Spanish-speaking communities here in MN and abroad as a testament to the cultural importance of this unique annual celebration of Latin American and Iberian cinema.
Cine Latino, the region’s only showcase of Latin American and Ibero cinema, features a rich tapestry of narrative and documentary films from across the globe from some of the world’s most acclaimed and up-and-coming Spanish- and Portuguese-language filmmakers. Cine Latino is enriched by the presence of visiting filmmakers and community events, featuring Ibero and Latin food and music. MSP Film Society developed Cine Latino in collaboration with members of the diverse Spanish-speaking communities in Minnesota, and curates the annual series of films from countries with rich filmmaking histories and cutting-edge film industries in collaboration with Argentinian guest artistic director Hebe Tabachnik.
More relevant now than ever, and firm in the MSP Film Society’s belief of the unique power of cinema to invigorate, inspire and help to change the world one film at a time, this year’s Cine Latino’s Focus is dedicated to “Cinema with a Conscience”, a wide-ranging selection of films that highlight social, political, environmental justice and activism.
