Tired of the mindless summer-blockbuster season? The New York International Latino Film Festival brings us an extensive showcase of thought-provoking films—more than a hundred movies all together (but don’t fret, you have almost a week to get through them all). Some of our favorite thespians, such as Danny Glover, Richard Englund, Edward James Olmos, and Danny Trejo, will star in these selections, ranging from feature films to documentaries to short films in English and Spanish. Also, the NYILFF is honoring the career of Andy Garcia, which spans almost 30 years, with a special talk and award for his contributions to the Latino community.
