¡Cine Magnífico! Albuquerque’s Latino Film Festival 2017

September 14September 17

Welcome to the 5th annual
¡Cine Magnífico! Latino Film Festival
Instituto Cervantes is proud to present ¡Cine Magnífico! to the New Mexico community once again.

This festival has become an important event in our community – it marks a transition time between summer and autumn, when families are returning to the routine of the school year. These films provide inspiration as the aroma of roasting green chile lofts into the late summer air. They remind us to savor the most subtle, elegant, and profound aspects of our daily lives here in our beautiful New Mexico communities, and to enjoy our time at the cinema.

Opening night has evolved into a lively community event on South 4th Street & Bridge Street in the beautiful National Hispanic Cultural Center, with its iconic vaulted ceilings and stunning architecture. Families, academics, students, filmmakers, artists, community leaders, and so many others mingle before the theatre opens, with beverages and food from our community’s finest restaurants and cameras flashing. It has truly evolved into a beautiful event.

This year, our team has selected a lineup of films which perfectly illustrate enriching points of view about emerging issues and topics that shape the current Hispanic-Latino cultures and landscapes, both here in New Mexico and beyond. This year’s screenings will take place at the National Hispanic Cultural Center, UNM, and the Guild Cinema. Central themes include immigration and children’s film, as well as New Mexico filmmaking. This year’s festival features films from Spain, Cuba, Argentina, Honduras, Chile, Mexico, Venezuela, Brazil, and the United States.

¡Cine Magnífico!’s vision is to present the newest films by and about Latinos to promote our culture through film and enrich our local art community. We showcase a diverse set of films, from award-winning to local and up-and-coming filmmakers. We also offer year-round film programming.

Thank you for supporting ¡Cine Magnífico! Enjoy the shows!
