The Cinema Tropical Film Series

To support the organization’s flagship exhibition program, The Cinema Tropical Film Series, we are requesting funding from the National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures (NALAC). Celebrating its 18th anniversary early next year, Cinema Tropical (CT) has become an important alternative platform for the exhibition of Latin American and Latinx cinema in the U.S. Since 2001, CT has been committed to empowering the Latinx film community -always collaborating with multiple organizations while using innovative curatorial, promotional, and academic approaches to provide high-quality programming to our dedicated audiences. CT has been instrumental in redefining cinemaƕs traditional boundaries and rethinking Eurocentric structures of film distribution and exhibition with the aim of creating larger and more diverse audiences for Latin American and Latinx cinema in this country.
