Note!, 3/23/15: You may have arrived here because of CLAS’s Latin American Film Festival being held this coming weekend (27th and 28th). Information for that is here (scroll down): This post is about the Latin American Film Festival held at AFI in the fall.

I went to see 2001: A Space Odyssey yesterday at the AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center in Silver Spring yesterday. In the previews, they advertised the 23rd annual Latin American Film Festival, which will also be held there. A few titles are up now, but the official schedule has not been posted yet, and this year they are also including films from Spain and Portugal. Excellent passes and discounted tickets are available as well, so you can go for as low as $10 (a steal in DC) if you chip in with your friends! More info about the festival is here.

You’re likely very busy with schoolwork, grading, writing, researching, etc., but if you’re new to DC this school year, I recommend taking a few hours out of your week to enjoy the many cultural resources that the area offers. (Also, in Silver Spring, word on the street says that the tater tots at the Quarry House are to die for.)

The AFI Silver Theatre is easily accessible via the Red Line Metro, just two blocks northeast of the Silver Spring station. If the Red Line is misbehaving, which happens more than occasionally, check the Metrobus routes here.
