aluCine seeks to showcase excellence and innovation in contemporary Latin American film and new media works. Their annual festival functions as a vital Canadian outlet for emerging and established Latin filmmakers living in Canada, Latin America and the diaspora, while our year-round screenings, symposiums and workshops promote the development of Latin film and culture in Toronto.

For the last twenty years, aluCine has presented a panorama of challenging and unique Latin American films by Latino artists living in Canada and abroad. As a Latin American media festival in Canada, aluCine facilitates a convergence of Northern and Southern aesthetic and cultural sensibilities, broadening common understandings of what it means to be Latino, both in Canada and internationally. aluCine seeks to keep the culture surrounding Latin short film alive and well, be it fiction, documentary, animation or experimental. aluCine is committed to functioning as an outlet for the Latino community as a whole while embracing our community’s extraordinary diversity.

This year, Keywest is proud to announce that we are one of the sponsors for aluCine Latin American media festival. We look forward to this new partnership and to broadening our horizons and exploring Latin American film and media.
