The Tampa Bay Latin Film Festival explores Latin America’s extraordinary emerging and established talent in film by bringing feature, documentary and short Latin American films to the Tampa Bay community.
This Festival hopes to answer the questions: What is happening in Latin American film? Who are the emerging filmmakers from that region – and what inspires them?
Our mission includes spotlighting the work of Latin American filmmakers in the United States. By providing more outlets for these extraordinary voices in film not typically seen in commercial theaters, we will explore the incredibly diverse perspectives that Latin America has to offer the world.
Through this process, national boundaries, and boundaries between self and other, begin to dissolve as we explore universal themes that unite us all – and further a dialogue that will create greater understanding and empathy for others.
