Official Latino Short Film Festival

NAME OF FESTIVAL: Official Latino Short Film Festival

SINCE: 2015

WHERE: Harlem, New York City, USA


Filmmaker Danny Hastings created the Festival in 2015 in response to the lack of diversity among Academy Award nominees. Our mission is to showcase, nurture, and support the emerging creative American Latino filmmaker in the United States. With the evident lack of American Latino representation in studio films and TV, it’s up to us — the American Latino — to tell our stories from our perspective. This Festival is created, funded and organized by American Latino filmmakers just like you. We believe that by supporting emerging talent we will begin to see a real representation of us on the BIG SCREEN.
