ABOUT / THE DSM LATINO FILM FESTIVAL

WHY / THE GOALS OF THE DES MOINES LATINO FILM FESTIVAL

01 / Provide access to Latino films not available in local theaters

 

02 / Support Latino filmmakers

03 / Connect Iowans to aspects of Latino culture and social life not presented in mainstream media.

Latino Center of Iowa, in partnership with the Chicago Latino Film Festival, has created Iowa’s first Latino film festival celebrating the rich cultural diversity of the Des Moines community through food, art, music, and performances featuring films from Latin America and Spain and showcasing the work of local Latin filmmakers.

Diversity, equity and inclusion is paramount and art must be accessible to all people in our community. It is important for Iowa to retain our young people, and offering a vibrant cultural scene is key to making our communities an attractive place to live.

Attendance to this 5-day festival is free to all, and to do this we are relying on the partnership, generosity and support of our sponsors to help us bring this first annual festival to Des Moines with an estimated attendance of over 2,000 over the three days.

The Chicago Latino Film Festival (CLFF) is produced every April by the International Latino Cultural Center of Chicago (ILCC), a pan-Latino, nonprofit, multidisciplinary arts organization dedicated to developing, promoting and increasing awareness of Latino culture among Latinos and other communities by presenting a wide variety of art forms. The Chicago Latino Film Festival began in 1985 with 14 films projected onto a concrete wall for 500 viewers, and has now grown into the ILCC, which was originally founded as Chicago Latino Cinema.
