The Standard Print, a San Diego-based online art house cinema, is teaming up with the 22nd annual San Diego Latino Film Festival to present six Latino short subjects on Saturday and Sunday at Media Arts Center San Diego in North Park.
The event will showcase six films and include a panel discussion following the 90-minute screening. Each short will give viewers something different — from a movie that highlights social injustice and draws from magical realism, to a film essay about immigrant labor in the San Joaquin Valley to a meditation on a broken heart.
“We’re thrilled to be bringing this hand-curated Latino film block to the big screen,” said Gina Von der Kret, co-founder and executive director at The Standard Print. “We hope to introduce some new faces to the short film medium and inspire folks to check out additional short films online.”
The short film block is open to the public and will be held at 4:30 p.m. each day, followed by additional Latino film festival programming. Tickets are $11.50 for general admission. The Media Arts Center is located at 2921 El Cajon Boulevard.
The Standard Print is a nonprofit online art house cinema with the mission to present and archive high-quality short-form cinematic works by emerging filmmakers.
