Esteemed Friends, Artists and Collaborators,

With much love and hard work we begin organizing and preparing the way for the 1st LATIN AMERICAN POETIC SHORT FILM FESTIVAL, at the acclaimed NUYORICAN POET'S CAFE. The festival will feature Poetic short films by Latin American Filmmakers. Our mission is to support the emerging Independent Filmmaker by providing them exposure in the Down Town Cultural Center of Manhattans’ Lower Eastside. At the NUYORICAN POETS CAFÉ Filmmakers can present their work to a diverse audience in an intimate atmosphere, meet and exchange ideas.
The LATINO AMERICANO POETIC SHORT FILM FESTIVAL is scheduled for September 2008.

"Poetic Film is a combination of expressive image and sound. It is original and personal. It need not be about poetry and yet, it can be set to poetry. It is lyrical, dreamlike, expresses new ideas, evokes emotion, triggers thought and heightens the spirit. If we are fortunate, Poetic Film may some day be uncovered for us to discover."
