I had the pleasure of attending the second edition of the Ecuadorian Film Festival in New York City. The experience was empowering and rewarding. I had the opportunity to meet wonderful new people that are working hard to make the film industry in Ecuador thrive and grow. The short films, documentaries and movies where shown in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens, reaching a much wider audience than the first one. All the films where quality ones and is hard to pick a favorite but if you have the time I would advice you to watch "UIO, sácame a pasear", "Vengo Volviendo", "Dream town" and a piece for those who love art and breathtaking panoramas "Persistencia".
