THE 6th BHLIFE FILM
It will take place March 2nd -
4th, 2012 in celebration on International
The Boyle Heights Latina Independent Film
Extravaganza (BHLIFE) will re-launch its
festival this year with a renovated image, a new
festival director and a new venue.
International Women's Day is a global day
celebrating the economic, political and social
achievements of women past, present and future.
BHLIFE is a celebration of Latinas, their voices
and their visions. The mission of the festival
is to build a network of Latina Filmmakers that
will draw attention tot the growing number of
Latinas working behind the camera. The films of
these Latinas constitute a body of work that
acts as a powerful statement against the
stereotypical portrayals of Latinas on screen.
Prizes are awarded at the film festival but the
ultimate goal is the unification of Latina
filmmakers in transforming their image to one
that empowers and inspires.
