OKCine Latino Film Festival and Youth Film Institute

Thank you to our sponsors:

The Oklahoma Cine Latino Film Festival will be a 2 day event, from March 9th - 10th.

The Oklahoma Cine Latino Youth Film Institute will take place every Saturday from January 27th-February 17th.

As Oklahoma grows to become the next major hub for the film industry, the OKCine Latino’s mission is to bridge the gap between the industry and those who may not have had previous exposure.

OKCine Film Festival

The Oklahoma Cine Latino Film Festival promotes the Latino cultural influence on cinema and has become a showcase for local and international filmmakers with submissions from Mexico, Spain, and South America. Our film festival kicks off with opening night on Saturday, March 4 in the Yale Theater. Join us as we present various films and awards and introduce you to the filmmakers behind these experiences. This night aims to introduce film lovers and filmmakers alike and will also include a presentation of short films created by the teams of students from the Youth Film Workshop: Class VII

The following Sunday will consist of free film screenings at the Capitol Hill Library. Join us as we watch these films and also visit with our guests in the filmmakers panel as they give us a behind the scenes look at their experiences creating their work and give us an insight into the film industry.

Youth Film Institute

The OKCine Latino Youth Film Institute serves to broaden the exposure and access to the industry of film making and provide hands-on experience to our local Oklahoma students. Students will learn the basic theories and processes of creating their own film and then work together to create their own short films. Students will be involved in every aspect of filmmaking, from the planning and script writing to the filming and editing.
