There’s no disputing Latin America’s track record in producing great movies, with quality, not quantity, the watchword. The list includes titles like Argentina’s The Official Story, Central do Brasil and No from Chile – all three of which have been nominated for the Best Foreign Film at the Oscars.

The 8th edition of the Festival de Cinema Latino Americano de São Paulo (São Paulo’s Latin American Film Festival) takes place at CineSESC, Cinemateca Brasileira, CINUSP Paulo Emílio, CINUSP Maria Antônia, and Memorial da América Latina.
