The Latin America & Spain Film Festival (LASFF) is a cultural event dedicated to contemporary cinematographic productions from Latin America and Spain.

It is also a non-profit event which aims to bring together Latin America, Spain and other New Zealand communities through the big screen.

The festival is run by all the Latin American and Spanish embassies resident in Wellington along with other Latin American embassies based in Canberra, Australia.

The festival has become very popular, and during the 2017 edition, approximately 6,000 spectators enjoyed the films.

This year we have 11 participating nations: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Spain and Uruguay.

The selection includes a wide range of genres, topics and styles, giving the general public and cinephiles a chance to immerse themselves into the languages – Spanish and Portuguese – as well as the cultural and social aspects of our countries.

While still based in Wellington, LASFF will be travelling all over New Zealand with the support of academics, cultural associations and students.
