17th Latin American Film Festival

Presented by ANU College of Arts & Social Sciences

The Latin American Film Festival (LAFF) is an initative of the Latin American Embassies in Australia to showcase their culture and film industry.

The Embassies of Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela have partnered once again to bring the biggest festival of its kind to cities throughout the country. This Festival provides an opportunity to reach the Australian public through the universal language of film. Furthermore, in keeping with the spirit of LAFF as a not-for-profit event, all the screenings are free of charge and open to the public. It is also an opportunity to bring the community together with Latino-flavoured events, and to acknowledge and celebrate the contribution of Latin American communities to Australian multiculturalism.

The 17th Latin American Film Festival (LAFF) is sponsored by the Council on Australia Latin America Relations (COALAR), and supported by the ANU Film Group and the Australian National Centre for Latin American Studies (ANCLAS).

The 17th LAFF will be launched in Canberra on 4 August 2022. All 15 films will be screened at Kambri Theatre, ANU, between the 4th and 31st of August. Find the program here.
