A unique festival that presents short films and plays to celebrate and showcase the Latinx community, it's artist, and it's stories. Short films and short plays are seldom seen by the general public, but even more rare is seeing Latinx artists on the big screen or the stage.
This year we are further expanding our short films lineup by including DANCE short films to create a multidisciplinary experience never seen before.
Additionally, in our commitment to better serve our Latinx comunidad and familias, we have added one day of programming for our young audiences. We encourage you to submit your short films for CHILDREN AND YOUNG AUDIENCES (Ages 4-14).
All official selections are voted on by our audience and are eligible for our Audience Favorite Award. A $100 cash prize will be awarded to the Audience Favorite winner. The winner will be announced on social media the day after the Festival.
