“Film festivals are dazzling times, when the shiniest lights of the current cinema are collected in one place for a concentrated moment,” said executive director and director of programming Jaie Laplante.

“So it is with this year’s GEMS selection, and I invite film lovers of all types to experience las joyas de la corona of the season.”
