This year's coordinatorEmbassy of Brazil in New Zealand
It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the Latin America and Spain Film Festival (LASFF) in 2019. The festival has reached its 18th edition and throughout this period has become an integral part of the New Zealand cultural scene.
As this is a free event, a larger number of New Zealanders can have access to the festival and get a closer touch with the movies from Latin America and Spain. This year’s selection includes a wide range of genres, so the public can immerse themselves in our varied and complex cultures and also experience the languages spoken in our countries – Portuguese and Spanish.
In 2019, the festival includes movies from ten countries (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Cuba, Ecuador, El Salvador, Mexico, Peru and Spain) and will reach eleven cities in New Zealand (Auckland, Christchurch, Dunedin, Hamilton, Kapiti Coast, Nelson, New Plymouth, Palmerston North, Waiheke Island, Wellington and Whanganui ). Please check venues, dates and times in this brochure, on our website and on Facebook (@LASFFNEWZEALAND).
We would also like to express our warmest gratitude for everyone involved in the organization of this event. The festival couldn’t have reached its 18th year without the generous support of our sponsors, the work of the Embassies’ staff and the efforts of local organizing teams. Special thanks for the continued support of the Wellington City Council, Massey University and all the venues around the country.
