Latin Arts Weekend:Latino Film Festival Highlights Latin American Culture

This year’s Latin Arts Weekend centered around a new addition, the Latino Film Festival.

Clara Isaza-Bishop, Instructor in Spanish and Co-Advisor of Alianza Latina, believed that a film festival would help fulfill the ultimate goal of Latin Arts Weekend as a whole: providing Andover with insight into Hispanic culture.

“The Latino population is growing. We need to learn about Latin American because there’s so much that we can learn about the history as well as the relations between the Latin American countries and the United States,” said Isaza-Bishop.

Andover’s Latino Film Festival was made possible by the support of Boston Latino Film Festival and a generous grant from the Abbot Academy Association.
