Afro Latin American Film Festival films

The Afro Latin American Film Festival has now passed. Thank you to everyone who attended!

The Afro Latin American Film Festival is a celebration of our cultural diversity through the great stories told in this selection of movies. Proudly presented in collaboration between the Department of Spanish and Latin American Studies, the Black Studies program, Kitchener Public Library and the Spanish Film Club, the festival provides KW audiences with an opportunity to experience a dynamic selection of contemporary Afro Latin American films that celebrate the rich and diverse cultures of the region.
