The Arts are central to our mission of training, bringing together, promoting, and preparing future generations of Latin Americanist and Caribbeanist Scholars. The rich culture of the Americas is a great vehicle to share the histories, experiences, and realizations of the people of the Americas and the Caribbean.

CLACS develops Film Series, Art Exhibits, Artistic Residences, and Special Programming covering a wide range of forms and topics from the region.

The NC Latin American Film Festival celebrates the power and artistry of Latin America's film and audiovisual production. Its mission is to provide a space in North Carolina for Latin American images, sounds, and stories to reach a wider audience.

Since 1986, the festival provides filmmakers the opportunity to showcase their work in a stimulating and friendly context. Every fall the NC Latin American Film Festival welcomes filmmakers and film lovers from around the region to North Carolina for multiple screenings of feature films, documentaries, shorts, and new media. The Festival is organized by the Consortium in Latin American and Caribbean Studies at UNC-Chapel Hill and Duke University and directed by Miguel Rojas-Sotelo.
