NC Latin American Film Festival: Time Machines | Maquinas del tiempo
October 20, 2019 - November 2, 2019
The NC Latin American Film Festival celebrates the power and artistry of Latin America’s film and audiovisual production. Its mission is to provide a space in North Carolina for Latin American images, sounds and stories to reach a wider audience. The festival was founded in 1986 by Sharon Mújica. Since 2008, the festival has been directed by Miguel Rojas-Sotelo, sharing both classics and new releases from different genres of a rich and prolific Latin American cinema tradition. The festival invites filmmakers from many of the 26 countries of the region, has shown films in 13 languages and has become a bridge between universities and cultural centers. In response to the demographic changes in North Carolina, the festival has screened films on issues such as migration, globalization and new political landscapes in the Americas.
