Festival 2018

Warm welcome to the fourth edition of Stockholm’s Latin American Film Festival Panoramica!

During five days, we embark on a full-featured program consisting of the best films, up-to-date seminars and other activities associated with Latin America.

This year, we especially want to highlight the voices and political struggles of many women and HBTQ + people against structural violence through our theme: Sprickor. Our collaboration with the film festival Cinema Queer follows this lead as we highlight these issues in a joint program.

The festival’s opening film is the first of the many films made by women in our program. The title of this film is Zama and is the latest feature film by Argentine director Lucrecia Martel, which is now finally shown to the Stockholm public. We want to thank the French Film Festival for the cooperation to make this possible.

A good new this year is that the BrasilCine film festival has become part of Panoramica. As a former visitor of BrasilCine, we are very pleased to honor the important effort they have made for more than ten years to demonstrate the vast diversity of contemporary Brazilian film production.

This year’s edition of Panoramica is the biggest ever and we hope the program will move and inspire you. We wish you a nice festival!
