Sydney Latin American Film Festival Turns 10!

By September 11, 2015 Events
In true Latin style, Sydney Latin American Film Festival is celebrating its 10th anniversary with not just one party, but four unique fiestas featuring Latino film, music and culture from Marrickville to the Harbour Bridge between September and November.
The Festival opens on 25 September. As a thank you to our supporters, we are hosting a non-­ticketed event with an amazing lineup of film and music with food and drinks available for purchase. All donations received on the night will go directly to maintaining the sustainability of SLAFF.

For the past 10 years we’ve not just had a great time with our audiences, but we’ve celebrated the diversity of Latin American culture and raised over $110,000 for Community Development Projects throughout Latin America.


We will be screening award winning Colombian feature Los Hongos. A melting pot of stories and experience, the film recreates a day in the life of two young graffiti artists in Cali Colombia as they search for a way to continuously create and express the freedom they crave. The film’s sophisticated visual language relentlessly bursts with colour and is matched with an energetic Afro-Colombian soundtrack.


DJ Hector Mikem is one of the most charismatic DJs of the Latin scene in Sydney, and resident DJ at Candelaria, Latin night. His musical influences began in his native Medellin ­ Colombia and over time he has established a unique style that has its roots in his passion for Salsa. DJ Mikem feels that music is the universal language that can unite cultures and societies.

Oscar Cadena began his journey as a DJ in 1993 in a small Salsa club of his home town, Bucaramanga in ­Colombia. When partying with Oscar’s tunes, be prepared to hear the authenticity of rhythms from his native Colombia mixed with the most current and vibrant Latin hits, creating an eclectic set that will make your heart beat at the rhythm of his music.
