Philadephia's Latin American Film Festival?

Wow. Philadelphia has it's own Latin American Film Festival? Didn't know this until about a couple of days ago. I can't find any information about all the films nor who is presenting the festival. However, the International House Philadelphia is hosting a reception and film screening of Found Memories/Historias que so existem quando lembradas. The film brings a photographer into a small town in Brazil to capture those untold stories. These stories are what a lot of artists look for in a great story. In fact, it's what I like about this crazy world. Some people find themselves in fast-paced cities like New York City and Philadelphia yet forget there are small (unknown) towns in the world. These small towns are filled with intelligent and creative human beings but have not found a way to escape; some don't event want to leave. I hope other venues open their doors to these films. And I don't mean your traditional Latino venues; these films should be presented everywhere.

If anyone has any more information about the film festival please feel free to e-mail me.
