(Latin American Studies, Spanish, School of Cultures, Languages and Linguistics)

15 September 2017 - 22 September 2017

The Latin America & Spain Film Festival (LASFF) is a cultural event dedicated to contemporary cinematographic productions from Latin America and Spain. It is also a non-profit event which aims to gather both Latin America and Spain, and other communities in New Zealand through the big screen.

The Festival is run by all the Latin American and Spanish Embassies resident in Wellington along with other Latin American Embassies based in Canberra, Australia. The Festival has become very popular and during the 2013 edition, more than 5000 spectators enjoyed the films. This year we have 11 participating nations from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Spain, Uruguay and Venezuela. The selection include a wide range of genres, topics and styles, giving the general public and cinephiles a chance to immerse themselves into the languages – Spanish and Portuguese – as well as the cultural  and social aspects of our countries.
