The Miami Latin Film Festival took place from 1996 to 2001. It is the predecessor to the Miami Latin Film Festival. It's mission was to promote Spanish language films and increase the awareness of Hispanic cultures among Hispanics and other community members.
In June 2001, the festival was formed from the merging of the Miami Hispanic Film Festival with the French-Hispanic Film Festival, also located in Miami, to form the Miami Latin Film Festival.
The aim of the festival was to promote Spanish language films and increase the awareness of Hispanic cultures among Hispanics and other community members.
Although the festival hasn't ran for a number of years, it had a huge impact on the latin film industry and we'd love to see it return one day.
Miami Latin Film Festival isn't the only festival that has stopped running. Marfa, Made-In-Michigan, Latin American Film Festival, John Paul II, It Came From Lake Michigan, HBO Comedy Festival, Hazel Wolf, Filmstock, DocMiami, Daytona Beach Festival, Dark Carnival, CineVegas, Cardiff, Black Earth Film Festival, Big MINI, Angelus, Amelia Island, Optronica, Temecula, Big River, and Muskegon have all ended their festivals.
