Latino International Film Festival honors culture and humanity
After a year of absence, the Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival returns for round 16.
Economic conditions led to the let down that was a year without what would have been the New York International Latino Film Festival.
Scheduled for location at the Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard, LALIFF is all set to return next week.
The five-day event will include a whopping 62 films. This includes 28 features from world, national, West Coast, and local premieres, as well as 11 documentaries and 23 shorts from 10 different countries.
The Festival will also include panels and the chance for filmmakers to connect with Hollywood's elite, including the co-founder of the event himself, Edward James Olmos.
"There's the ability for the culture to be understood, the diversity of that culture," he said. "We've got films from Guatemala, Peru, scattered areas of Central and South America, the United States, Spain, Portugal, and Mexico."
Are you looking forward to LALIFF 2013?
