Latin American Cinemateca of Los Angeles (LACLA) presents the 13th annual LACLA Student Film Festival on Friday, December 18th. Due to the current COVID-19 health crisis, LACLA has decided to practice safe, social distancing by offering their selective student film festival for the first time free of charge in a virtual format.

The festival will be available on the LACLA website at https://www.lacla.org/ as of December 18, 2020 and will remain on-line indefinitely.

As a means of encouraging and celebrating student film making, the festival will feature short films created by youth from various media arts programs and middle and high schools in the greater Los Angeles area.

“The Latin American Cinemateca of Los Angeles proudly presents the 13th Annual Student Film Festival honoring the creative work of our inner-city middle and high school students. We also extend a special note of gratitude to the instructors for their dedication in guiding their students in this creative endeavor. Congratulations to all!” says Michael E. Diaz – President of Latin American Cinemateca of Los Angeles.

LACLA’s 13th Annual Student Film Festival received over 200 film submissions. We will be showcasing 10 finalists. Winners will be selected for Best Film, Most Creative, and Best Social Impact.
