Bringing together independent filmmakers from across the country with Latino advocates in the entertainment industry, the Reel Rasquache Art & Film Festival showcases films by or about the U.S. Latino experience in all genres and formats – animation, dramatic and documentary shorts and features, experimental, webisodes, and, introducing this year, a forum on cell phone filmmaking.  In addition to around-the-clock film programs, the weekend-long festival will include live music and dance, a Youth Filmmakers’ Showcase, filmmaking workshops, directors’ roundtable, an art exhibit, networking receptions, and the annual closing night award ceremony that recognizes leaders, pioneers, and trailblazers in U.S. Latino film and art.
