Suzuki Auto, the proud maker of exciting vehicles that reflect consumers’ active lifestyles, has announced its official sponsorship of the 8th New York International Latino Film Festival (NYILFF).
As the exclusive official vehicle sponsor for the festival, Suzuki Auto will present a special screening and after-party for the film “El Muerto,” produced by and starring Wilmer Valderrama.
The auto company will also play a starring role during the NYILFF Family Day on Saturday, July 28, at Maribel Sisters School in Washington Heights.
The free event will include family-friendly entertainment, flamenco dancing, outdoor games, arts and crafts workshops, and a unique opportunity to enjoy the ultimate mobile movie experience provided by Suzuki’s own Flix concept vehicle – an ultramodern XL7 SUV equipped with a digital projection system and a roof that opens to reveal a 40-inch movie screen that, for this occasion, will debut shorts produced by kids from the community-based media organization Manhattan Neighborhood Network.
Suzuki Auto is also launching a nationwide animation contest, “¡Anímate! – La vida Suzuki,” featuring the Suzuki XL7, which will be announced at this year’s festival.
Call for entries for the online contest will begin in September, coinciding with Hispanic Heritage Month, and will conclude with the winning animation featured at the 2008 NYILFF.
