Latin American Film Festival in Canberra

Presented by ANU College of Arts & Social Sciences

Now in its 14th consecutive year, the Latin American Film Festival in Australia (LAFF) returns with a selection of 14 movies representing Latin America at its finest.

The Embassies of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela have partnered once again to bring the biggest festival of its kind to Canberra. LAFF is a not-for-profit event, and all of our screenings are free of charge and open to all members of the public.

Latin American cinema, a source of great talent, vivid colours and rich stories, is traditionally underrepresented in Australian screens, and LAFF provides an opportunity to reach the Australian public through the universal language of film.

The ANU Film Group in Canberra has partnered with LAFF for the first time to offer the best viewing experience. The festival also receives the very generous support of the Australian Government through the Council on Australia Latin America Relations (COALAR), and the Australian National Centre for Latin American Studies (ANCLAS) of the Australian National University.
