This year, the festival will launch on March 25, 2014 in Tribeca Cinemas with a red carpet event followed by the world premiere of “Default” by Simon Brand, and will close on March 30 with the U.S premiere of “La Tierra en la Lengua” by Ruben Mendoza. The official selection includes 15 fiction films, 20 short films, four documentaries, and three Latin American blockbusters.
