IndiePix, Celebrating Independent Film

Latino Films

Since 1999, the NY International Latino Film Festival has been shining the spotlight on rising talents within the Latino film community. As the festival ramps up again this July, it's the perfect time to take a look at some of the great films to come out of the Carribean, Central and South America in recent years as well as some classic Latino cinema.

For a glimpse into the freshest faces on the directing scene, check out the Cinedulce Compilation, which includes a selection of some of the best short films from previous years at NYILFF. If you're in the mood for an award-winning feature, don't miss the amazing Entre Nos from Paola Mendoza, which tells the troubled tale of a single mother who, after being abandoned by her husband, has to struggle to make a life for her children in America. For the music fan, there's Estilo Hip Hop, a brand new documentary about the rising tide of Latino MCs and DJs in North and South America.

Without a doubt, Latino film is definitely on the rise in the indie film world. A quick survey of the last twenty years shows that more and more Latino films are making their way onto the international scene. If you haven't seen Guillermo Del Toro's the Motorcycle Diaries about the early years of Che Guevara, you have been missing out! It is one of the most visually stunning films of the last decade. Likewise, if you have somehow missed the classic, Black Orpheus, a triumph of Brazilian cinema, you owe it to yourself to sit down and take a look. Finally, for those hankering for a good old Mexican shootout, there's also the famed El Mariachi, the first installment of Robert Rodriguez's Mexico Trilogy.
