From the wonderful and inspiring to the thought-provoking, say hola to the 12th annual Sydney Latin American Film Festival (SLAFF) this September (07-11). Returning to Dendy Opera Quays, the Festival will screen a specially curated program of captivating contemporary Latin American cinema: eight feature films, two documentaries, and seven shorts, along with vibrant opening and closing night parties, over five jam-packed days.
Opening the 2017 Sydney Latin American Film Festival is the award-winning Cuban film On the Roof in a special opening night fiesta!
Yasmani, Vito and Anita gather daily to pass the time sharing dreams and making plans. When they set up their own business for locals, they learn more about themselves than they ever expected.
From 6:30pm enjoy a bite from Pablo’s Kitchen + glass of wine or beer on arrival!
