The state of international cinema has never been quite so varied, in part thanks to the increased accessibility of filmmaking tools allowing aspiring artists to pursue their vision. This vitality continues to propel the Cine Latino Film Festival, now in its seventh year under the Film Society of Minneapolis/St. Paul. The weeklong schedule of screenings includes some 14 features, each contributing to this year’s theme of cinema with a conscience. Standouts among the eclectic lineup include Chilean documentary The Cordillera of Dreams (winner of Best Documentary at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival), the Roma/lesbian drama Carmen and Lola (winner of Best Supporting Actress and Best New Director at the 2019 Goya Awards), and the blended animation/live-action piece Another Day of Life (winner of Best Animated Feature at the 2019 Goya and European Awards). Enhancing this year’s fest are special events, including a panel featuring four female filmmakers (Marcela Arteuga, Linda Goldstein Knowlton, Veronica Haro, and Ruth Zachs) who will discuss filmmaking as a medium for storytelling.
