Latin Wave: New Films from Latin America presents Houston premieres of movies from many of the leading and emerging talents of contemporary Latin American cinema. This four-day event features screenings, discussions, and appearances by filmmakers who are often visiting Houston as part of an international itinerary of festival presentations. Latin Wave has been praised for its strong programming and the unique opportunities it creates for the public to interact personally with festival guests. Many of these films reach Houston after winning awards at prestigious festivals around the globe, and some have gone on to become their country’s nominee for the Best Foreign Language category of the Academy Awards.
