The festival will present some of the most thought-provoking Latin American, Spanish, and Latino-U.S. shorts produced in the last five years. Animated and fictional short films as well as documentaries and experimental works will be featured. It is free and open to the public, and all films are English-subtitled.

The festival opens on October 23, at 7 p.m., with a two-part program, “Kid at Heart,” a “kid”-protagonist-driven short film selection where humor and sometimes cruelty are the keys to discover our “hidden child.” The second half features a selection of short films that have won awards at such important film festivals as Cannes, Guadalajara, Havana, and Mar del Plata.
