DRCLAS is pleased to co-sponsor several screenings of the 2017 Boston Latino International Film Festival (BLIFF). In its 15th year, the festival remains committed to its mission of "using the power of film to break stereotypes bring cultures and communities together and reveal the complex issues that affect the Latino community in the United States and Latin America."

The 2017 programming is aligned with this mission and expands the festival’s scope. “This year in addition to showcasing films by submission BLIFF will also include many award-winning feature-length films never before screened in Boston ” the BLIFF press release explains. “Several of these films were directed and/or written by women. This year’s recurring theme is the power of music and its impact on society and individuals. Also BLIFF is proud to feature eight films with ties to the New England community.

BLIFF will recognize the best submissions in the feature documentary and short film categories at the end of the festival. And for the second year in a row audiences will vote for their favorite film with the winner announced at the closing reception on Oct 1.” The festival runs from Thursday Sep 28 through Sunday Oct 1 with screenings taking place at DRCLAS on Thursday Sep 28 and Friday Sep 29.

A full schedule can be found on the BLIFF website.
