Celebrating ten years of Latino cinematic excellence, NYILFF is committed to showcasing films and artists that offer expansive depictions of Latino culture to a cross-section of diverse nationalities and communities. NYILFF screens films made by, about and/or for the Latino community. The NYILFF is the only film event to have had the endorsement of Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s NYC Latin Media and Entertainment Commission since its formation in 2003.
Outside of the Cinedulce Showcase, NYILFF continues to seek films made by or featuring Latinos, and/or for and about the Latino community. The Festival accepts films in all genres and forms, including feature narrative, short films, documentary and experimental shorts. Past NYILFF premieres include celebrated films such as LIBERTY KID, AMERICAN SON, RAISING VICTOR VARGAS, and RIKERS HIGH.
