Launched in 1999, the New York International Latino Film Festival (NYILFF) is one of the premier Urban Latino film event in the country. The New York International Latino Film Festival's mission is to showcase the works of the hottest emerging Latino filmmaking talent in the U.S. and Latin America, while offering expansive images of the Latino experience and celebrating the diversity and spirit of the Latino community. Programming includes the flagship film festival in NYC, new music and art showcases, family and community events, scholarships for aspiring filmmakers, and a nationally recognized short film competition in partnership with HBO. The New York International Latino Film Festival is the only film event to have had the endorsement of Mayor Michael Bloomberg's NYC Latin Media and Entertainment Commission since its formation in 2003.
The NYILFF is not only showcasing national and international feature films, documentaries, and shorts. The festival will also hold industry panels on such topics as film distribution and financing and special events such as the Hola Mexico Film Festival (www.holamexicoff.com), which demonstrate the festival's dedication to providing a wide milieu of culturally relevant programming. The six-day schedule of film, music, outdoor screenings and cultural events highlights the full range of Latino culture, targeting different segments of the community.
