The Boston Latino International Film Festival showcases films that deal with issues of importance and interest to the Latino community in the US, Latin America, and Spain. An important part of our mission is to portray an accurate image and representation of Latinos in the US and Latin America. About 70% of BLIFF's programming focuses on human rights, immigration issues, the environment, and overall social justice issues.

    BLIFF happens every year at Harvard University, Northeastern University, and other community venues. Our audience is mostly residents of Greater Boston, the local film and academic communities. 

    The Boston Latino International Film Festival (BLIFF), "Bridging Communities Through Movies," will screen the best current videos and films in the following categories: Feature Film, Documentary, and Short Film. The Festival will be held in 2023.
