The Colombian Film Festival in New York
has been bringing Colombians closer to their culture for 5 years and creating an important window of opportunity for the young and old talents of our country.
Founded in Manhattan in 2012 by Juan Carvajal, a young filmmaker from Cali (Colombia), the Colombian Film Festival of New York seeks to unify the Colombian and Latin community in that city through the best cinematographic productions of our country. For many years the film industry in Colombia limited the resources to produce cinema. Among several challenges, it was the absence of a national audience that demanded more Hollywood productions. In recent years, Colombia has expanded its resources to support filmmakers across the country, since then the number of productions has increased dramatically.
This year the Festival celebrates its 5th year with the premiere on Thursday March 23rd of the film “Dogs” by Harold Trompetero, and will extend until March 26 with the projection of more than 43 titles of the most varied national cinema . 2.35 Digital will be present thanks to its participation in some of the shorts and feature films that will be projected in this festival:
