LIBERACION FILM FESTIVAL- III edition
The Afro-Latino Festival of New York celebrates the contributions that people of African descent from Latin America and the Caribbean have made to our city and the global culture as a whole.
The LIBERACION FILM FESTIVAL is the next phase of the cultural celebration we share with our community. Film, t.v. and Web 2.0 help shape visual culture and inform popular notions of belonging. This fall we set out to showcase a wide array of films starring or created by Afrolatinxs from 13 countries. If you are an artist, film buff, entrepreneur, academic, or community leaders we invite you to join us. The festival aims to highlight the work, values and issues important to the Afro-Latino community.
Our mission is to provide a networking space to pay tribute to the African roots of people from Latin America and the Caribbean. The festival commemorates the international decade for people of African Descent declared by the UN (2015-2024) and its principles of "Justice", "Recognition", and "Development."
