The Sydney Latin American Film Festival has been the cornerstone for Latin American cinema and culture in Sydney since 2006. We are a not for profit organisation and funds raised from tickets sales are injected into social justice, environmental and community development organisations in Latin America and Australia. Over the past 12 years, our Community Support Program has raised more than $120,000. We could not have done this without our numerous volunteers, supporters, collaborators and sponsors, whose passion for promoting Latin American cinema and culture has enriched many lives.
The SLAFF committee and crew are passionate, span generations and each represent different geographical regions of Latin America, bringing an array of ideas and experiences from a Latin American perspective. This diversity is priceless and represented in our year-round programming.
We live and breathe Latin American film and culture. We live in your community and will bring you the best films and events with the broadest spectrum throughout the year.
But we still have a lot of work to do. Even in a multicultural city like Sydney, stereotypes abound about being Latino/a. The Sydney Latin American Film Festival has a responsibility to represent the diversity of stories, cultures and voices coming from the vast Latin American continent. We aim to achieve this through a deeply considered selection of feature films, documentaries and shorts that further the understanding and appreciation of Latin America.
