Vancouver Latin American Film Festival

VLAFF 2014 OFFICIAL LOGOThe 11th annual Vancouver Latin American Film Festival runs from August 30th until September 8th, 2013. What started as a single-venue, three-day event has blossomed into a vibrant, multiple-venue, ten-day celebration of Latin American culture. This year’s festival will feature over forty of the best feature-length and short films (both fiction and documentary) to come out of Latin America over the past year.

Highlights of VLAFF’s 11th festival include:  a Spotlight on Colombian Cinema; Canada Looks South, a program of films by Latin-Canadian filmmakers; Asian Perspectives from Latin America, a series of four feature-length films that address themes of Asian identity within a Latin American context; and, a series of talkbacks with guest directors following selected screenings. The festival will culminate with the presentation of four awards:  the First-Time Directors Award; the Al Jazeera Documentary Award; the VLAFF Short Film Award; and, the Youth Choice Award.
