Film lovers shouldn’t miss the new Festival du Cinéma Latino Americain
“It’s been a really, really good year for Latin American film,” says Yuri Berger. And while that’s the kind of thing you’d expect to hear from the programming director of the new Festival du Cinéma Latino Américain de Montréal, he’s actually quite right. Films from South and Latin America have been picking up awards and acclaim at Cannes, Sundance and most recently the Oscars, and FCLM’s programming is full of the cream of the recent crop. Berger, formerly of Festivalìssimo (which has moved to June) has put together an excellent selection, almost all of which will play with English subtitles, and even if you’re not specifically into Latin American cinema, you should really make some time for this new fest.
