Attention Directors! The Philadelphia Latino Film Festival Is Looking For Submissions!
The Philadelphia Latino Film Festival (PHLAFF) was established in 2012 and has become the Greater Philadelphia region’s only festival showcasing the extraordinary and innovative work of emerging and established Latin American and Latino filmmakers.
Each year, the Festival includes screenings of ground-breaking works from all genres. Festival programs attract a diverse audience, developing a new space in the Philadelphia region where filmmakers, actors, and producers can meet with other artists, engage with audiences and present and discuss innovative work.
This year, PHLAFF will be hosting its 4th Shorts Pop-Up Submission Contest, as well as the LOLA awards!
PHLAFF’s Pop-Up Short Film Contest will choose select films to appear in at least two of our festival programs. This is the chance for emerging filmmakers to show their work at PHLAFF, complementing the other segments of our program that are curated. Short films must be 20 minutes or less, and must fall under the following categories:
In addition, PHLAFF’s LOLA Awards competition will recognize and honor cinematic achievements in filmmaking that brings together all of the elements that make for a great film, including direction, acting, cinematography, and great script/writing and storytelling. LOLA films must fall under the category of documentary. Films that receive the LOLA award will also be screened at the festival.
