The Colombian Film Festival

For many years the film industry in Colombia has often lacked the resources to produce national cinema. Among several setbacks, was the absence of a national audience who demanded Hollywood films. In recent years, Colombia has expanded its resources to support filmmakers throughout the country, since then the number of productions has increased dramatically.

Juan Carvajal founded the Colombian Film Festival of New York in 2012. He noticed the small presence of Colombian cinema while visiting New York City. Determined to unify the existing diaspora of the country & new york community he set a goal to create a festival dedicated to the exhibition of Colombia’s roots and talent. Let’s discover and rediscover our story through film!
