The festival will take place over four days, from Thursday, September 15 to Sunday, September 18 and all films will be shown in Spanish with English subtitles. 

The festival will kick off on Thursday, September 15, at 8:15 PM with the Long Island premiere of “Silent Beauty.” Filmmaker Jasmín Mara López will be flying in from California for a live discussion after the film, which will be screened at Sag Harbor Cinema.

On Friday, September 16, at 7 PM, “The King of All the World” will screen at the Parrish Art Museum. This film features cinematography by Oscar award-winning director of photography Vittorio Storaro and was directed by the world-renowned Spanish filmmaker Carlos Saura. It examines contemporary issues challenging Mexico through a visual feast of music, dance, and drama. A bilingual museum tour and reception will precede the film at 6 PM. Guests are asked to bring their own chairs, as this is an outdoor screening. Tickets are $5 for museum members and $15 for non-members.

The festival moves back to Sag Harbor Cinema on Saturday, September 17, at 7 PM with the Costa Rican film “Clara Sola,” which is co-presented with Cinema Tropical. Directed by Nathalie Álvarez Mesén and winner of multiple international awards, this film takes place in a remote village in Costa Rica, where Clara experiences an awakening as she begins a journey to free herself from the repressive religious and social conventions that have dominated her life. Tickets are $10.

The festival concludes with “Encanto,” a family-friendly film presented in Spanish with English subtitles for all ages on Sunday, September 18, at 2 PM at the Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center. The film is followed by live music by an Ecuadorian band and a singing competition for young people. Tickets to this event are free.
