The Best of Latin American Cinema in Toronto

Welcome to the Toronto Latin American Film Festival, an appointment in our city with the very best of Latin American cinema, and a celebration of our cultural diversity through the great stories told in this selection of movies from the whole Spanish speaking continent.

We are the cultural and artistic thread between Latin American and other background heritage communities who enjoy watching movies and documentaries.

What inspires and moves us most is bringing together cultural diversity, age, religious, political and gender differences through our passionate and unique Latin American perspective on arts and film entertainment.

Proudly presented by the Hispanic Canadian Heritage Council, the 2021 edition of the festival includes movies, documentaries and short films from Colombia, Peru, Uruguay, Argentina, Nicaragua, Cuba, Costa Rica, Chile, Mexico, El Salvador and Venezuela.
