During the year, VLAFF programmers and guest curators view films that either were submitted to the festival, we see in other film festivals or are recommended by a great network of festival programmers. VLAFF opens a Call for Submissions in February to receive films for all of our different sections. In addition, every year festival programmers attend different film festivals that specialize in Latin American cinema such as the Havana, Guadalajara, and San Sebastián film festivals. In December, VLAFF will host our second Work in Progress Virtual Forum for Indigenous filmmakers and filmmaking collectives from across the continent.
