The Hispanic Film Society of Victoria
The Society continues the work of the organizing committee which has been in charge of setting up the Latin American and Spanish Film Week since 2010.
By becoming a Society, the members aim to engage more closely the diverse communities interested in cinema and the cultures of the Hispanic world.
We invite the public to attend the annual Film Week as well as getting in touch with us to learn more about our activities and the possibilities for volunteering.
