Latin American Film Festival
September 13 - October 3, 2018

Welcome! Bienvenidos! Bem-vindo!
Now in its 29th year, the AFI Latin American Film Festival is one of North America's largest and long-running showcases of Latin America cinema. With the inclusion of films from Spain and Portugal, the festival celebrates Ibero-American cultural connections during National Hispanic Heritage Month.

2018 Early Announcements
Highlights from this year's slate of early announcements include Sundance Film Festival award winners THE QUEEN OF FEAR (Argentina) and TIME SHARE (Mexico); acclaimed genre-bending Brazilian werewolf movie GOOD MANNERS; Colombian graphic novel adaptation VIRUS TROPICAL, winner of this year's SXSW Audience Award; Peruvian drama RETABLO, winner of the Crystal Bear and Teddy Jury Award for Best First Feature Film at the 2018 Berlinale; and the U.S. premieres of Puerto Rican drama SILENCE OF THE WIND and historical epic MORAZÁN, the first official Oscar® submission for Honduras.
