The purpose of the Georgia Latino Film Festival is to conduct an Annual Film Festival celebrated in the state of Georgia that features Latino directed, produced and acted films among other national and international entries. Through this Film festival we will showcase latino talent in Georgia and educate and empower the next generation of latino storytellers.
The mission of the Georgia Latino Film Alliance is to build awareness of independent films and film as an art form; provide educational opportunities for students and Georgia Latino filmmakers; and create opportunities for the Georgia communities to experience high-quality Latino films.
To make sure that our stories are being told in Hollywood and around the world, that our community has a place in Georgia where Latino film executives directors and artists at the forefront of the Latino Film and animation industry can come together to discuss the future of our industry and create a vehicle to develop the next generation of Georgia Latino film-makers.
