LASFF is an annual non-profit event which aims to bring together Latin American, Spanish and other New Zealand communities through the big screen.

The Latin America & Spain Film Festival (LASFF) is a cultural event dedicated to contemporary cinematographic productions from Latin America and Spain. 

It's also a non-profit event which aims to gather both Latin America and Spain, and other communities in New Zealand through the big screen.

The Festival is run by all the Latin American and Spanish Embassies resident in Wellington along with other Latin American Embassies based in Canberra, Australia.

This year's festival is organised by the Brazilian Embassy with participating nations from Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Spain, Uruguay and Venezuela.

The selection includes a wide range of genres, topics and styles, giving the general public and cinephiles a chance to immerse themselves into the languages  – Spanish and Portuguese –  as well as  the cultural  and social aspects of the countries.

While still based in Wellington, LASFF is travelling to Birkenhead, Upper Hutt, Christchurch, Hamilton, Wanganui, Palmerston North and New Plymouth, with the support of academics, cultural associations and students.
