aluCine Latin Film & Media Arts Festival says
Crossing Borders / Cruzando Fronteras: 20 Years of Latin Canadian Cinema is a special two-day retrospective presentation that showcasing the creativity and achievements of independent Latino-Canadian filmmakers from the 1970s to 2000s, highlighting their integral contributions to the artistic identity of the Canadian cultural landscape.

Encompassing more than 20 films of all genres and formats, Crossing Borders / Cruzando Fronteras will be presented at the Royal Cinema on June 1st and 2nd, 2016.

This is the first time such a retrospective will be presented on Latin Canadian filmmaking, as Latino-Canadian media artists are not widely represented in the larger Canadian arts and culture milieu.

As the foremost organization advancing Latin Canadian filmmaking and supporting the presentation of works by Latin diasporic artists, aluCine Latin Film + Media Arts Festival hopes that Crossing Borders / Cruzando Fronteras will open up a larger platform for the appreciation of Latin Canadian filmmaking, both past and present.
