New York Int'l Latino Film Festival
Launched in 1999, the New York International Latino Film Festival (NYILFF) has quickly grown into the largest Urban Latino film event in the country. NYILFF showcases the works of the hottest emerging Latino filmmaking talent from the U.S. and Latin America. Its mission is to support these filmmakers, offer expansive images of the Latino experience and celebrate the diversity and spirit of the Latino community. NYILFF's current annual programming line-up includes the flagship weeklong film festival in NYC, a touring arm, an annual screenwriters' lab, a new music showcase, special one-off screening events, a short film competition in partnership with HBO, and a high school scholarship program sponsored by Time Warner.
