Providence Latin American Film Festival

The Providence Latin American Film Festival (PLAFF) was founded in Providence, RI in 1993, as a non-profit and multi-cultural organization, to promote Latin-American culture.

At the time called The Festival of New Latin American Cinema, the organization aimed more specifically to provide Latin American film directors with an opportunity to exhibit their work in New England. Since then, PLAFF organizes an annual event during the Hispanic Heritage Month, presenting the best fiction, documentary, animated, and short films produced in Latin America, Spain, Portugal, other Spanish and Portuguese-speaking regions of the world; as well as work produced by North American Latino film makers. Over the course of its history, PLAFF has collaborated with national film institutes, film schools, distributors, producers, independent directors, community organizations and international film festivals to program the most recent, high quality films that would not otherwise be seen in New England, along with a plethora of activities for the incredibly diverse communities of the region.
