    I have never been to the Latin film fest here! I have heard so many amazing thigs about the opening night and obviously Nortec’s music is such an ecclectic mix of music that it would be really sad to miss their show, help a girl out!

    I’m so sad I didn’t know about this festival earlier! Having lived in Ecuador for a year, anything related to latin culture is nostalgic. I’d love to attend this!

  18. Christine October 11, 2012 at 5:44 pm #

    I LOVE foreign films, there’s just a style about them that are more appealing than the general blockbuster hits that make the big screen. I love Latin American films! Please pick me, I really want to see these!

    I didn’t know this festival existed until now! I love Latin American culture, and was lucky to get to spend a summer living in Chile. All of these films look wonderful, and I would be so grateful for a pair of tickets (or even just one ticket). Por favor!! Pick me!!!

    Mi novia y yo hablan espanyol como segunda o cuarto lenguaje, y por eso creo que seria una buena oportunidad para aprender mas y platicar con otras personas de mente similar. Tambien nos gustamos el cine.
