From a media release:
March 21-31, 2013 in Toronto
The aluCine Toronto Latin Film+Media Arts Festival is Canada’s longest-running Latin film festival. The festival functions as a vital Canadian outlet for emerging and established Latin filmmakers living in Canada, Latin America and the diaspora, while our year-round screenings, symposiums and workshops promote the development of Latin film and culture in Toronto. In all of its endeavors, aluCine strives to transgress aesthetic, ideological and geographical borders and to transcend pre-established notions of representation as they pertain to Latin American culture in Canada.
The 13th aluCine Toronto Latin Film + Media Arts Festival returns to heat up Toronto from March 21st to 31st. The 10-day festival will feature 77 short and feature films presented at The Jackman Hall within The Art Gallery of Ontario, along with our famous program of family-friendly Shorts for Shorties screenings at The Wychwood Theatre, artist’s talks, workshops, gallery instillations and parties at some of the city’s hottest nightlife venues on Queen West and in Kensington Market. This year, the festival will feature a special focus on AfroLatinidad. Film screenings start with March 27th’s Opening Gala, featuring the Canadian premiere of Juan Andrés Arango’s breathtaking feature debut, La Playa DC, arriving in Toronto from Colombia by way of Cannes.
