CUSA International Students’ Centre

LAFF 201519th Latin American Film Festival
April 25 - May 9, 2015

Don't forget to check out the main event! The Latin American Film Festival begins April 25.
The Canadian Film Institute, in cooperation with the CUSA International Students' Centre, is pleased to present the return of South ↔ North, a program dedicated to conversations and topics of cross-border relationships, cultures, language, and art between Latin America, Canada, and the United States.

This year, we have invited independent producers experienced in co-production projects between the Americas to present some of their films, as well as discuss important themes and behind-the-scenes details at Q+A presentations and a FREE panel discussion.

The CFI is also honoured to announce the Ottawa premiere presentation of a film from Puerto Rico for this year’s edition of the South ↔ North program.

We are thrilled to be in partnership with Carleton University in presenting this year’s event in the beautiful River Building Theatre.
