What makes Cine Las Americas unique?

Austin is internationally known as a film town. In addition to this, the unique character of the City, along with its geographic location contribute to a rich cultural atmosphere. In a town with many cultural and entertainment options, Cine Las Americas programs offer a truly international character by representing the fastest growing demographic in the United States, while integrating these cultures to the wider multicultural landscape of Austin. Cine Las Americas audiences not only have the opportunity to watch films that otherwise would not be available for public exhibition, on the big screen and with English subtitles, but they are also privy to learning the importance and relevance of these works through the unique experience that only these specially curated Latino and Indigenous film exhibition programs can offer.

Cine Las Americas works directly with filmmakers, distributors, industry representatives, and government agencies in order to acquire temporary rights for the exhibition of the films it offers to the public, whether these screenings are offered for a ticket price or free of charge. By doing this, Cine Las Americas functions as a cultural agency representing Latino and Indigenous cultures, and also as an international film institution that engages artists and industry professionals in business and supports the production and exhibition of quality cinema.
