Pulsos Latinos: Films from the frontier of Latin American cinema

April 18 - April 26
Northwest Film Forum,
1515 12th Ave, Seattle, WA 98122 United States

Explore a nueva ola in Latino cinema with us this April, as we mine the open veins of a transcontinental film movement—both native and diasporic (Spanish, Portuguese, and of course English-speaking)—filled with vibrant, insurgent film voices.

An industry boom in production and funding, combined with digital technologies and an invigorated festival circuit (including FIC Valdivia in Chile, BAFICI in Argentina, Morelia FF and FICUNAM in Mexico, to name a few) has transformed a once marginally-exposed cinema region into a contemporary center of film gravity.

From lush Amazonia to the arid frontera, from cock-fighting comedy in Costa Rica to slacker drama in Ecuador, from tragedy in the Andes to growing up punk in Jalisco: there’s a world waiting to be discovered. Come join us as we explore the new crystal frontier.

9th Aaina South Asian Women’s Focus festival

April 25 - April 27
Seattle Asian Art Museum,
Volunteer Park, Seattle, WA 98112 United States
+ Google Map
Nine years ago, it started as one reading, one script and one show….. Today, that one reading has inspired countless others and blossomed into a festival of its own – celebrating, liberating, encouraging, nurturing a community. Aaina is a South Asian Women’s focused festival, but  the energy, the vibe, the power impacts us all.  For the three days in April, we will immerse ourselves in the stories, art, discussion, film and during this interaction, you will see yourself reflected in new  stories and journeys. 
March is Women’s History Month, and I feel propitious to be surrounded by some amazing women who inspire me every day.
For Aaina 2014 we have 12 amazing, bold, courageous and fun women performing their own stories in Yoni Ki Baat. We are proud to present 5 visual artists who come from as diverse backgrounds as you can imagine! We will premiere a short film by our very own local filmmaker, along with other films.  For Youth Voices, we are delighted to have a strong, brave and utterly delightful young women who has been called Seattle’s Smartest Global Women. Come and see how women are helping women “whipping up recipes for success” during SAPWN! Share your own story in Community Speaks!

A special shoutout to all our sponsors and mainly Gardner Center for Asian Art & Ideas, Jaipur Avenue Chai, & Disha Studios for their support year after year!

Dear friends, supporters and patrons of Tasveer- please join us for 9th Aaina at Seattle Asian Art Museum from April 25-27, 2014!
