Schedule for Latin American Films at BFI London Film Festival

By 13 October, 2011

The BFI London Film Festival 2011 has now officially started. To save you the work of having to search through the programme for the Latin American films on show, here’s our day-by-day guide to the Latin American movies being shown at the festival.

The film to watch out for is Las Acacias, mainly because you’ll be seeing it winning all kinds of awards over the next couple of years. In truth though, these are all worth watching. The organisers of the London Film Festival put a lot of work into bringing only the best films from Latin America, and so we’re sure none of these will disappoint.

You can find short synopsis for all of the films here.
