Bordeaux Latin American Film Festival

Logo of Bordeaux Latin American Film Festival

The Latin American Film Festival of Bordeaux, France, was born in 1983, aiming at promoting quality films not or little broadcasted in France.

It started at a time when Latin American Cinema was completely missing in French movie theaters. For some years now, we are glad to witness that Latin American Film production has greatly grown and entered distribution channels in Europe. However, our mission does not end, as Latin American films are still not present enough and the richness they offer makes us believe, every year, that our Festival has still a great mission to accomplish.

The Latin American Film Festival of Bordeaux, since it was created, has gathered more than 65.000 people, of all ages, rushing to meet our more than 2.500 professionals invited throughout our history [...]
