20 years of the Latin American and Spanish film festival in Aotearoa, New Zealand
We are delighted to announce that this year the Latin American and Spanish film festival will present its 20th edition, celebrating the bonds and strong relationships that have been forged over these years between New Zealand and the participating nations.
In 2022, the Festival brings together nine countries (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Mexico, Peru and Spain) with Argentina as host this year.
The festival will open in Wellington on September 3.
A specially selected collection of films in a variety of categories will be screened, with the primary aim of bringing New Zealand audiences closer to the history, culture and social developments of Latin America and Spain, through the work of the fascinating local film industry of each country. .
This is a free non-profit cultural event that will take place from September to December in 11 locations: Auckland, Christchurch, Dunedin, Hamilton, Nelson, New Plymouth, Palmerston North, Tauranga, Waiheke Island, Wellington and Wanganui.
As with all our previous editions, we are very grateful for the support of our sponsors and local communities, including a number of Latin American and Spanish bands, who have all put tremendous effort and enthusiasm into ensuring the success of this event.
The LASFF Organizing Committee invites everyone in Aotearoa New Zealand to take advantage of this opportunity and connect with Latin America and Spain. We are convinced that the next step could be a chance to visit one or more of this group of nations and experience their diverse and rich cultures firsthand.
