    BLIFF is a yearly event on it's 11 edition. Every year we receive between 250 - 300 applying films to our festival. This year BLIFF will be hosted between Oct. 25-28 at Northeastern and Harvard University and will screen a selection of 60 films from 15 Latin American countries. “The Northeastern community is proud to host this important festival and proud to showcase the beauty, depth, and creativity of Latino/a and Latin American cinema, diversity and culture.” said Professor Alan West-Durán, Director of the Latino, Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program at Northeastern University. Professor West-Duran is also in charge of bringing BLIFF to Northeastern University, Films will be screened at two different venues: at the John O’Bryant African-American Institute at Northeastern University and at the Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies at Harvard University. Prices will be $10 per program at both locations. ALL FILMS IN SPANISH AND PORTUGUESE WILL BE SUBTITLE IN ENGLISH. Panels, the opening and closing receptions will be free and open. “Eleven years ago we had an idea to provide the greater Boston community with a high-quality film festival that would capture and highlight the diverse experiences of Latinos in the United States and abroad. Since then, the festival has grown immensely, and support from the community has been phenomenal,” said Jose Barriga, founder and director of the festival. The Boston Latino International Film Festival is committed to breaking stereotypes and building communities by using the medium of film to strengthen inter-cultural understanding and promote work of independent filmmakers. Over 60 films from over 14 countries will be featured, including the United States, Argentina, Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Spain and Mexico, among others. All of these films will be premiering in Boston.
