Welcome/Bienvenidos

Since 2005, the Gainesville Latino Film Festival has featured hundreds of groundbreaking, highly acclaimed and thought-provoking films from Latin America. In 2020, our mission continues: to afford Gainesville the unique opportunity to see world-class cinema, innovative shorts, international award winners, and foster diverse experiences that link people through the art of cinema- launching Gainesville as a cultural destination.

The current public health crisis, and related restrictions on public gatherings, has us redesigning the Festival format this year. But don’t worry–nos vemos en septiembre!

To all of our sponsors, partners, supporters, volunteers and friends, past, present and future –we thank you for your continued support, excitement, and most importantly, your passion for films!
