Atlanta Film Society presents ¡CineMás!
Presented by the Atlanta Film Society, ¡CineMás! highlights films and filmmakers from Latin America.
The inspiration for ¡Cinemás! is the Latin American Film Festival that enjoyed a 25-year run at the High Museum, programmed by the late Media Arts Curator, Linda Dubler. In this spirit, ATLFS is pleased to continue this tradition, presenting award-winning Latin American cinema through ¡CineMás! each fall. The mission of ¡CineMás! is to create visibility for Latino films in front of a large audience and support the increasing necessity of Latino representation in film.
