THE BORINQUENEERS documentary film has been selected to participate in a Retrospective profiling the best films of the past 10 years at 11th Annual Latino & Native American Film Festival. Our film was an Official Selection in 2016. It can be screened online on April 22nd for 24 hours at https://xerb.tv/channel/lanaff/virtual-events
Latino & Native American Film Festival (LANAFF) is once again honored to showcase ground-breaking feature films, documentaries, shorts, animations, and other artistic manifestations by or about Latinos and Native Americans.
With so many stereotypes stilting Latinos and Native Americans in this country, it’s our mission to promote these two cultures for a better understanding of perceptions and realities.
Our collaboration with Southern Connecticut State University is focused on encouraging the recruitment and retention of Latino & Native American students toward furthering their education at the university level.
LANAFF has helped familiarize the university’s, public school’s, and Greater New Haven diverse communities with excellent artistic and entertainment film projects being created by contemporary Latinos and Native Americans filmmakers. This festival is free and open to the public.
On May 31, 2021, LANAFF awarded THE BORINQUENEERS to be “Among the Best: 1st 10 Years” (Entre las Mejores de Nuestros Primeros 10 Años). LANAFF wrote: “Congratulations to each of you for your diligence, artistry, technological know-how, and dedication to telling our stories, as Latinas/Latinos and Native Americans, in such a wide variety of formats and creative styles.”
