About the Tulipanes Latino Art & Film Festival

The Tulipanes Latino Art and Film Festival will welcome thousands to celebrate the many contributions of our Latino community through art, film and music.  The festival will engage the imagination through a variety of artists who bring their talent and collective contributions together for this celebration.

Award-winning films will be shown at the Holland Civic Theater. Films include shorts, documentaries, and feature-length, all of which explore a variety of themes in which Latino imagination and creativity approach humor, politics, culture, fiction and art. Most films are screened in Spanish with English subtitles. All film viewings are open and free to the public.

Our Festival takes place in Holland, MI. Learn more about Holland!
