The CLACLS (Center for Latin American, Caribbean, and Latinx Studies) team is thrilled to announce that we are hosting the first Latinx Film Festival at UMass Amherst. 

These films give visibility to a Latinx film production that is generally assimilated into minoritized views of US cinema in the United States and elsewhere. We have also invited filmmakers Monica Cohen and Samuel Kishi Leopo, as well as Ivan Monalisa, whose life story is featured in one of the films. They will be joining us to present their films and will be available for questions during the Q&A session and other events we will be announcing soon. 

This film festival is part of the Latinx Heritage Month, so we encourage everyone to attend and spread the word.

Movies in other languages than English will be subtitled, and we'll have food
