Welcome to the Toronto Latin American Film Festival, an appointment in our city with the very best of Latin American cinema, and a celebration of our cultural diversity through the great stories told in this selection of movies from the whole Spanish speaking continent.
We are the cultural and artistic thread between Latin American and other background heritage communities who enjoy watching movies and documentaries.
What inspires and moves us most is bringing together cultural diversity, age, religious, political and gender differences through our passionate and unique Latin American perspective on arts and film entertainment.
Proudly presented by the Hispanic Canadian Heritage Council, in collaboration with the City of Toronto, the Latin American Studies at the University of Toronto, and the Art Gallery of Ontario, the 2019 edition of the festival features movies from Canada, Venezuela, Colombia, Peru, Argentina, USA, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Brazil, Uruguay, Mexico, Cuba and Ecuador.

As a complement to the festival, Latin American films and documentaries are screened all along the year at Cineforum│Lataff, followed often by open discussions managed by film directors, producers, actors, and/or Latin American Film Festival, Lataff, staff. It’s a great opportunity to get to know the Latin American culture, language and the art of film making from such an important worldwide film community members.
