The poster exhibit Art Representing Film: Portrayal of the Chicago Latino Film Festival Throughout the Years runs April 1 to October 29 at Harold Washington Library Center, in the Van Buren Corridor on the Ground Floor.
The Chicago Latino Film Festival posters represent the growth of the festival over more than 30 years as well as the significance of film as an effective tool to cultivate understanding of Latino culture.
We'll have two film screenings in conjunction with this exhibit:
- Film Screening: Habanastation: 5:30 p.m. Thursday, March 30 at Harold Washington Library Center.
- Film Screening: My First Wedding/Mi Primera Boda: 5:30 p.m. Thursday, April 13 at Harold Washington Library Center.
Both films were originally screened at the 28th Chicago Latino Film Festival in 2011.
For over 30 years, the festival has held a poster contest to select the image of that year's festival. A panel of judges in the fields of design and marketing selects the winning poster, which graces the cover of the film catalog, T-shirts, and even advertising on buses and bus shelters. The contest is open to artists worldwide.
Announcing the contest winner kicks off the promotion of the festival each year. This year's festival is April 20 to May 4.
This exhibit is presented in association with CPL's Hispanic Services Committee.
