The fourth edition of the Latin American Film Festival is happening mid November

We love film festivals, and we love them even more if the screenings are free. One of the most democratic film festivals in town, the fourth edition of the Keppel Latin American Film Festival (KLAFF) will take place from Nov 17-20 at Golden Village Suntec City. The festival is hosted by the Resident Embassies in Singapore of Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Chile, Cuba, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Venezuela & Uruguay.

Some of the films being featured this year are A Los 40 (Back to School) which showcases the life of eight people in their 40s who face their past, present and future at a reunion party and are forced to think about where their life is heading; and The House At The End of Time, which is the highest grossing horror film of Venezuela and shows the life of Dulce, who was blamed for the murder of her family.

But we are particularly excited about Habanastation, a Cuban film which showcases the life of a rich young kid Mayito, who gets lost in the May day celebration and finds himself in a rather poor neighborhood where his fellow classmate resides, and slowly learns the simple joys of life. The making of this film was initially pushed back because of insufficient funding, but later the locals raised funds to get it back on track. It later went on to win the Traverse City Film Festival’s best of the fest award in 2011.

How to score a ticket? Just show up 30 minutes before screening time and grab a seat on the spot. Check out all the trailers on this YouTube playlist.
