The Latino influence on the world of film is undeniable, so every year the Denver Film Society is proud to honor the impact of these vibrant cultures with CineLatino, a four-day film festival celebrating the hottest in Latino cinema with exclusive premieres, receptions, and special events.

This year’s programming will have something for cinema lovers of all ages and interests.

Families will be treated to New York Children’s Film Festival’s special presentation ¡Viva Kid Films!, featuring animated, documentary and live action films from Mexico. Attendees will also observe the power of narrative in film ranging from the comical to the serendipitous and dramatic. Whether you are a life-long fan of film, looking for a family-friendly way to kick off the Fall, or just a curious mind seeking new stories, your ticket to CineLatino is your ticket to the Latino experience.
