Cornell Cinema is pleased to collaborate once again with Cine con Cultura, Ithaca’s annual Latinx and Latin American film festival, which takes place during Latinx Heritage Month (September 15-October 15, 2023). The festival is organized by Cultura Ithaca!, Ithaca College, and Cornell's Latina/o Studies Program, with screenings presented at Cinemapolis, Ithaca College, and Cornell Cinema.

This year’s line-up at Cornell Cinema will feature an eclectic mix of new films, including a recently restored Cuban comedy, an epic Argentinian mystery drama, an animated film from celebrated Brazilian director Alé Abreu, a mystical Costa Rican environmental drama, a documentary about the transgender Indigenous artist Uýra, and a special event featuring the acclaimed artist Coco Fusco, presented in partnership with the Johnson Museum of Art and the Cornell Public History Initiative.
