aluCine Toronto Latin Film + Media Arts Festival

aluCine Toronto Latin Film + Media Arts Festival

alu­Cine is orga­nized by South­ern Cur­rents / Cor­ri­entes del Sur, a Toron­to-based, non-for-prof­it orga­ni­za­tion ded­i­cated to the devel­op­ment and pre­sen­ta­tion of con­tem­po­rary media art by local artists of Latin Amer­i­can her­itage; the pre­sen­ta­tion of inter­na­tional Lati­no works in Cana­da; and the pre­sen­ta­tion of Cana­dian works in Latin Amer­ica and else­where since 1992.

After 12 years, alu­Cine has evolved into a mul­ti­fac­eted media arts fes­ti­val that includes video and sound instal­la­tion, new media, web based art, per­for­mance video and film in its pro­gram­ming. alu­Cine presents dar­ing and reward­ing cin­e­matic works show­cas­ing Latin Amer­i­can artists liv­ing in Cana­da and around the world. We avoid com­mer­cially ori­ented films and seek out com­plex and mul­ti-faceted shorts and oth­er films that take dar­ing approach­es. Through this we tran­scend pre-estab­lished notions of rep­re­sen­ta­tion and cross bor­ders; aes­thet­i­cally, ide­o­log­i­cally and geo­graph­i­cally with the screen­ing of Cana­dian works in Latin Amer­ica and else­where.
