ElCuentro Film Festival

EL ENCUENTRO: THE LATINO FILM EXPERIENCE

Welcome to our Festival! “El Encuentro: The Latino Film Experience” is a celebration of Hispanic filmmakers from all over the US and Puerto Rico.

October 14, and 15, 2022, “El Encuentro” will be featured at the beautiful new Richard and Nancy Donahue Theatre at Middlesex Community College, 240 Central St, downtown Lowell, MA, a celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month. Featuring short films of up to 15 mins in length, we are proud to share these creative, colorful, and important two evenings of film to the city of Lowell, MA, and the surrounding Greater Boston area.

These films have been culled from hundreds of submissions from all over the country, and we will feature all genres of film… animation, original screenplays, comedy, and documentary.

“Art Is The Handmaid Of Human Good” is on the City Seal of Lowell, MA; the home of Jack Kerouac, Bette Davis, and James McNeil Whistler. We have received generous funding from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, as well as monetary support from local businesses. 

 

Online ticket sales will cease at 12PM on the day of the show.

We will hold a limited amount of tickets at the door.
