The last few decades have seen an explosion of talent and energy in Latino filmmaking, a vigorous nueva ola that is celebrated and explored at the New York International Latino Film Festival. In the same spirit of inspiration and creativity, we’re giving away premiere tickets to two people who best describe their choice for favorite Latino film of all time.
Presented by HBO, the NYILFF will be celebrating its 11th season with dozens of films made by emerging Latino artists. Alongside all the features, shorts, and documentaries, the festival will be promoting new music and art showcases, family and community events, scholarships for aspiring filmmakers, and a nationally recognized short film competition. Speaker panels will cover such relevant topics as fundraising, distribution, and, of course, ways to tell truly great stories.
How to Enter
All those who love movies — especially those made by Latino artists — are invited to answer the following question:
“Which do you think is the greatest Latino film ever made, and why?”
We’re looking for brief and insightful answers that capture the essence of truly great films. An answer might be “I think Amores Perros is the best Latino film of all time, for its compelling script and strong direction. It’s a film that stayed with me for days afterward.”
The Fine Print
You can also buy tickets to the NYILFF and its numerous events and film screenings held throughout the New York City area.
