Legacy

Despite the perception of some that Third Cinema belongs to the past, its legacy lives on in new films being produced by talented directors all over the world. The best way to see these films is at film festivals celebrating films from particular regions, heritages, or forms. Below is a listing of film festivals grouped alphabetically by US city where you can find films guaranteed to challenge your perspectives and inspire you. Many of these film festivals are prime locations to view films produced by immigrant populations or US-born children of immigrants from Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
