 Latino and Native American Film Festival
March 24-28, 2018 ASC Theatre
Currently in its 8th year, the Latino & Native American Film Festival (LANAFF) is groundbreaking in its dedication to the recruitment and retention of Latino and Native American students toward furthering their education at the university level. The Festival is, further, innovative in its promotion of these two cultures through the exhibition of feature films, documentaries, shorts, and animations, as well as through other artistic manifestations, by or about Latinos and Native Americans. The Festival has helped familiarize the university’s, public schools', and Greater New Haven's diverse communities with excellent artistic, social, political, and entertainment film projects being created by contemporary filmmakers. With so many negative stereotypes inhibiting the progress of Latinos and Native Americans in this country, it is important for all communities to meet and interact toward a better understanding of perceptions and realities. Sponsored by the Latino & Native American Advancement Committee; Minority Recruitment and Retention Committee; Student Government Association; Multicultural Center. With support from the  Organization of Latin American Students; Department of World Languages; and Department of Media Studies; Department of Communications; Department of Integrated Marketing and Communications and the Adanti Student Center.
