Switch It Up!
Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival

"Switch It Up" is a Cocoa Fly series encouraging women to step out of the box, break it down and put it in the recycle bin. It's time to have fun and live it up!


This week I'll be covering the Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival for Cocoa Fly. Yay! The festival runs from Oct 11-Oct 16 at Mann Chinese Theater in Hollywood, CA. Steven Spielberg and Quentin Teratino aren't the only people out there making good films. This week Switch It Up and look at movies from Mexico, Argentina, Spain, Brazil, etc. I've said this before, ladies there's a whole world out there. Step out of your comfort zone and explore it. Going to a film festival is a small step that can be a lot of fun. For more info click here. Adios.
