The 12th Annual New York International Latino Film Festival (NYILFF) Opens With Its First Ever Animated Film

The 12th Annual New York International Latino Film Festival (NYILFF) opens with its first ever animated film, Chico & Rita on Tuesday, August 16 at AMC Empire Cinemas in Times Square.  Tickets are on sale at the festival’s box office at AMC Theatres and the festival’s web site: Opening Night Reception, Screening and After-Party Presented by Heineken.

The NYILFF has been presented by HBO® for the past 12 years.

A sensual collision of vibrant colors, passionate storytelling and music from the greatest period of creativity in Cuban-American jazz are the hallmarks of the first animated Opening Night Film in NYILFF’s history. Cuba, 1948. Chico is a young piano player with big dreams. Rita is a beautiful singer with an extraordinary voice. Music and romantic desire unites them, but their journey – in the tradition of the Latin ballad, the bolero – brings heartache and torment. From Havana to New York, Paris, Hollywood and Las Vegas, two passionate individuals battle impossible odds to unite in music and love.

*Ticket price includes admittance to film screening and official after-party and a one-year subscription to Latina magazine. Must be 21 or over for admittance to the party.
