[ Crowdfunding ] Support Lakino

Within three years, Lakino has become an important part of the film festival scene in Berlin. Beyond the base of a loyal audience there is a steady increase in the number of visitors interested in Latin American film every year. Therefore, Lakino wants to offer the Latin American Film Festival you deserve: a Feature Film Festival.

To do so we need your help!! We need funding to pay the screening rights of the films that will be shown in Lakino 2013. Since we don’t receive any funds we’ve decided to launch a crowdfunding campaign to ask support to all of you!! #Support Lakino
