¡Cine Magnífico! is New Mexico's only film festival presenting the voice and vision of Latin@ cinema. The festival exhibits contemporary documentaries, short films, and feature films about Spain, Portugal, Latin America, and Latinos in the U.S. In doing so it promotes intercultural awareness and celebrates the diversity of Ibero-American cultures throughout the world. Albuquerque has strong roots in the culture brought by settlers from Spain, and continues to be influenced by immigrants from Mexico and Latin America. When listening to music or enjoying dance performances, you'll often find an unmistakable Hispanic and Latino influence. We want to be at the forefront of the movement to increase cultural opportunities for the entire Latino community and bring Latinos and non-Latinos together to share common experiences.
