Project Cinémate, a group of students led by Spanish lecturer Oscar Berrio, brings together the local community interested in Latin American culture by screening films at the UTSA 1604 Campus. According to Berrio, the objective is to educate, enhance, enrich, entertain and promote the awareness of Latin American culture by presenting movies monthly, each time representing a different country.
The Argentinean film, "Nine Queens," was presented in November 2006. In February and March, the Brazilian film "Me You Them" was screened.
The film series is sponsored by the Office of International Programs, the Hispanic Student Association, Department of Modern Languages and Literatures and the Office of Student Activities.
