Currently in its 7th year, the Latino & Native American Film Festival (LANAFF) is ground-breaking 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.
