The Vancouver Latin American Film Festival is glad to announce its opening and closing films for this year’s festival.
As Colombia is our guest country this year, VLAFF will have the honour to open with a great Colombian film, LOS VIAJES DEL VIENTO, directed by the young director Ciro Guerra. LOS VIAJES DEL VIENTO was part of the official selection at the Cannes Film Festival 2010, being the first Colombian film in this selection in 11 years (the last one was La Vendedora de Rosas by Victor Gaviria). LOS VIAJES DEL VIENTO has been presented in a number of international film festivals and has won awards at the Bogota, Cartagena, Cannes and Santa Barbara Film Festivals.
For our closing night VLAFF will screen a film co-produced by Colombia, Mexico and Spain. RABIA, directed by the Ecuadorian filmmaker Sebastian Cordero and was produced by the Mexican director Guillermo del Toro.
