As well as this the Centre gives hands-on history lessons about Latin American cultures that have evolved in Canada, along with screenplays, novel and poetry recitals, Latin American art and photography exhibitions, and regular Latin American dance events. The Vancouver Latin American Film Festival takes place every year throughout August and September.
