Our star event of the year is without a doubt the Chicago Latino Film Festival (CLFF), held every Spring for 38 years! This event is the longest-running exclusively Latino Film Festival in the country and is an important platform to lend a voice to Latino filmmakers from around the world.

As a not-for-profit organization, we depend on the help and work of talented volunteers and interns that wish to learn the multiple aspects of the Arts and Culture Latinosphere, programming events, social media management, and artist and membership support.

Interns join us each year to learn all aspects of what we do, giving them the experience and knowledge to program events, coordinate social media campaigns and manage marketing plans across many multidisciplinary arts.
