Director Erwin Neumaier with the El Pulpo for Best Film of the Festival
The Tampa Bay Latin Film Festival located in St. Petersburg, Florida, explores Latin America's extraordinary emerging and established talent in film by bringing feature, documentary and short Latin American films to the Tampa Bay community.
Learn more about us at "Our People."
The Festival hopes to answer the questions: What is happening in Latin American film? Who are the emerging filmmakers from that region and what inspires them? Our mission also includes spotlighting the work of Latin American filmmakers in the United States. By providing more outlets for these extraordinary voices in film not typically seen in commercial theaters, we will explore the incredibly diverse perspectives that Latin America has to offer the world. Through this process, national boundaries, boundaries between self and other begin to dissolve as we explore universal themes that unite us all. Hopefully this Festival will further a dialogue that will create greater understanding and empathy for others.
The festival is a project of Linda Friedman Ramirez Latin Art LLC.
The inaugural festival will be held from October 19-21, 2018 in St. Petersburg, Florida.
The Courtyard by Marriott Downtown St. Petersburg has provided a group rate available July 1, 2018.
