The University of Central Florida is proud to present the first Latin American/LatinX Film Festival in honor of LatinX Heritage Month and our status as a Hispanic-Serving Institution (HSI). This film series aims to showcase the arts, language, and diverse issues that are important in a region of the world that is so significant to many of our students, faculty, and staff as well as the community of which UCF is a part. This film festival was possible due to the generosity of PRAGDA’s Spanish Film Club grant, and the support of the School of Politics, Security and International Affairs, Modern Languages and Literatures/Latin American Studies, UCF Global, and Florida Prison Education Project in collaboration with Puerto Rico Research Hub, Department of History, Women’s & Gender Studies, Department of English, Interdisciplinary Studies and the College of Undergraduate Studies.
THIS IS A HYBRID EVENT. You can attend in person at the Visual Arts Building Auditorium Rm 132 or online through a virtual platform. RSVP is required for both attendance options.
ON CAMPUS PARKING: Free parking is available in Garage F (behind the CFE Arena) or in most parking lots and garages after 5:30 PM with the purchase of an AFTER HOURS daily parking permit ($3.00). Permits can be purchased at the lot kiosks or online.
COVID-19 Notice: In accordance with the CDC guidelines, UCF asks that everyone, whether vaccinated or not, wear a mask indoors. The organizers reserve the right to change the format of the event based on CDC and University guidelines.
The Spanish Film Club series was made possible with the support of Pradga, SPAIN Arts & Culture and the Secretary of State for Culture of Spain.
