The Canadian Film Institute created the Latin American Film Festival in 1997. Our goal is to increase the awareness, appreciation, and understanding of the richly creative and diverse cinemas of Latin America in Canada’s capital. Over the first 22 years of programming and organizing this public festival, in collaboration with our generous partners at the GRULA (the group of Latin American embassies accredited by the Government of Canada), we have presented 307 Ottawa premieres of Latin American films, 26 visiting filmmakers, and have attracted close to 65,000 spectators.
