March 2-4, 2012 -- BHLIFE Film Festival

March 2-4, 2012
BHLIFE Film Festival
CASA 0101
Boyle Heights
Los Angeles, CA


Taking place March 2nd - 4th, 2012 in celebration on International Women's Day.

The Boyle Heights Latina Independent Film Extravaganza (BHLIFE) will re-launch its festival this year with a renovated image, a new festival director and a new venue.

International Women's Day is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future.

BHLIFE is a celebration of Latinas, their voices and their visions. The mission of the festival is to build a network of Latina Filmmakers that will draw attention tot the growing number of Latinas working behind the camera. The films of these Latinas constitute a body of work that acts as a powerful statement against the stereotypical portrayals of Latinas on screen.

Prizes are awarded at the film festival but the ultimate goal is the unification of Latina filmmakers in transforming their image to one that empowers and inspires.
