“Americas Latino Festival Inaugural & Benefit”

The Americas for Conservation and the Arts 501c3, launching the 1st Americas Latino Festival of Colorado recognizes our communities impacted by the September 2013 floods now working hard at rebuilding and healing. We have restructured the Nov. 16-18, 2013 Festival as an “INAUGURAL FESTIVAL AND BENEFIT” honoring our communities in need of recovery and the sponsors that have had to redirect funding intended for the Festival to relief efforts. We are rescheduling the full blown Americas Latino Festival for September 19-22, 2014.

Our “Inaugural Festival and Benefit” of Nov. 16-18 will be donating 20% of all proceeds from the two only components that carry ticketing ( 10 films and 1 concert) to victims of the floods. The event now is structured to include a family day at CU Museum of Natural History and Boulder Public Library, 5 art exhibits (Boulder Public Library, Denver International Airport, CU Museum of Natural History, McNichols Civic Center Bldg), talks at Boulder Public Library Theater & CU Boulder Old Main Chapel, and a film forum of 20 films, 10 with directors.
