Latin American Film Center, Inc. is a New York nonprofit organization which aims to develop a film center in New York City that will be a showcase for first-run, classic, documentary and experimental films from and about Latin America and the Caribbean; a center for research on the history of film, filmmaking and the film industry in the region; the core of a program of cultural outreach to New York area communities that have ties to that region; and a nexus uniting far-flung academic circles engaged in the examination of a range of moving image studies.  A longer term goal will be to develop the film center into the cornerstone of a broader cultural complex that would incorporate theater, music, art, dance, archival resources and other cultural expression of a broad range of sectors of Latin American and Caribbean societies, including indigenous sectors.
