Gainesville Latino Film Fesitval

Featuring a series of free film screenings, musical performances, public lectures, and panel discussions throughout the month of September, the Gainesville Latino Film Festival (GLFF) is one of city’s largest and most culturally diverse public events. The GLFF is hosted and organized by the Latina Women’s League.

As part of Hispanic/Latino Heritage Month, GLFF celebrates the tremendous contributions of the Hispanic/Latino community to the arts and entertainment industry. Screening a total of 21 films from 14 different countries, the 2015 film line up showcased the diversity of political viewpoints, social issues, and cultural practices that exist throughout the Latin community. During many of the film screenings, audiences have the opportunity to participate in group discussions led by distinguished guests. The 2016 GLFF will take place from September 8-24—check out our film lineup or our media kit for more information!

The GLFF is a nonprofit, multidisciplinary arts organization dedicated to developing, promoting, and increasing awareness of Latino cultures by presenting a wide variety of art forms and education. Imperative to the GLFF mission is to create a cultural dialogue amongst Latinos and non-Latinos to discuss universal experiences.

All programs are free and open to the public
