¡Cine Magnífico! celebrates Spanish and Latin American culture through the presentation of some of the best of
modern cinema in a weekend-long program, featuring work by first-time filmmakers and established masters alike. The subject matter runs the gamut from comedies, action, romances and documentary films, to dramatic masterpieces.
Some of the riskiest and most innovative films of recent years will be included. The festival is offered as part of Instituto
Cervantes’ goal to be at the forefront of the movement to increase cultural opportunities for the entire New Mexico
