Cine Latino Film Festival

The first Cine Latino Film Festival is coming to Brisbane. This festival is dedicated to celebrating the best of contemporary Latin American cinema. The program features new films from Mexico, Brazil, Paraguay, Argentina, Cuba, Uruguay, Colombia, Venezuela, Chile, Guatemala and Puerto Rico. It will be held in Brisbane at the Palace Barracks from Friday 12 August to Wednesday 24 August 2016.

Cine Latino Film Festival

With more than 30 films from across Latin America, Cine Latino is the biggest and brightest selection ever to hit Australian shores," said Program Coordinator Alex Castro. "It's a vibrant filmmaking region that has given us some of the greats of world cinema. This festival provides an opportunity to see emerging talents and revered masters alike, as well as giving us a window into the many faces and places of a unique part of the world."

The opening movie stars one of my all-time favourite actors, Gael Garcia Bernal in Neruda. This film is a reimagining of Pablo Neruda, the Nobel Prize winning poet's journey into political exile in Chile. He uses his time as a fugitive as an opportunity to reinvent his work and life.

There are four movies dedicated to football, including a documentary about the 1950 World Cup Final where host nation Brazil faced Uruguay. The closing night film is Argentina celebrating the rich folk music and dance heritage of this country, including performances of zamba, malambo and copla.

Your Comment
It sounds like a nice festival. We are going today but I would like to ask if you can correct one spelling mistake. It is Colombi (my country) no Columbia ( a city in Usa and brand name). :(

One film called GLORIA I saw earlier - wonderful, sensitive, surprising - just what film art should be. The performer is amazing.
