Latin Wave: New Films from Latin America

Thursday–Sunday, May 1–4, 2014

What:      The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, in association with creative partner Fundación PROA (Buenos Aires) and sponsor Tenaris, announce the return of Latin Wave: New Films from Latin America. Continuing the tradition of the previous Latin Wave film festivals, the ninth edition brings to Houston the best and latest trends in Latin American cinema: a diverse collection of work by emerging filmmakers.

Once again, a delegation of filmmakers will travel to Houston to introduce a number of the screenings during the four-day event, and Festival programmer Diana Sanchez will also be in attendance this year. The countries represented in Latin Wave 9 include Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, Uruguay, Venezuela, and for the first time, Guatemala, Costa Rica, and the Dominican Republic.  The 2014 Latin Wave lineup also has a strong presence of films directed by women.

 

When:      Thursday, May 1, through Sunday, May 4

On May 1, the festival kicks off with a special Latin Wave-infused Happy Hour Thursday. With extended hours this year, guests are invited to celebrate the premiere with drinks, beats, and food-truck bites inspired by Latin Wave, beginning at 6 p.m.

Cash bar. Must be 21 or over to purchase and consume alcoholic beverages.
