We also thank all the talent that accompanied us in this festival edition and found a fantastic audience. Their dedication and creativity drive our festival, and we are proud to share their works with such a passionate and receptive audience.

The Colombian International Film Festival New York was only possible with the enthusiasm and support of the New York audience. You keep this window into Colombian cinema open in Manhattan; we are eternally grateful for that.

Thank you, New York, for joining us in this celebration of Colombian cinema! We look forward to seeing you next year for a new edition filled with more stories to tell and more dreams to share.
