about

Latitude showcases daring and visionary works of upcoming or established filmmakers and media artists facilitating resources to read them closely and discuss them at large from a global south perspective.

We are committed to offer a respite for attentive explorations of cinema and media arts. Each season, Latitude programs screenings and selects reading materials. When possible, we host artists who preview their work-in-progress or most recent material and deliver a public lecture.

Thanks to the generous contributions of several departments and centers, Latitude was initially operated by a group of graduate students to serve the UT Austin campus community. Our members are currently partnering, individually and as a collective, with other organizations to bring exciting programs beyond campus as well as other cities across the US and Mexico.
