Argentinean drama Historias Clandestinas De la Havana will open the fifth Miami Hispanic Film Festival next month, while Ken Loach's Bread And Roses closes proceedings.

Films in competition at the event include Chilean box-office hit Coronacion, by Silvio Ciaozzi, Venezuelan-Spanish co-production Oro Diablo and Brazilian blockbuster O Auto Da Compadecida. Also vying for the six Golden Egret awards are Peru's Ciudad De M and Mexican-Spanish title Sexo Por Compasion.

The festival, which last year attracted more than 30,000 cinema-goers, aims to promote Spanish-language films and raise the awareness of Hispanic cultures.
