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

We are committed to offer a respite for attentive explorations of cinema and media arts. Each season, Latitude members program screenings, select reading materials and lead discussion sessions. When possible, we host artists who preview their work-in-progress or most recent material and deliver a public lecture. The ensuing Q&A fosters a lively intellectual exchange.

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.
