Each year, patrons are treated to a diverse range of shorts, feature films, and documentaries at the two-week-long event which showcases the voice, cultures, and stories from Latin America. The festival runs for around two weeks and takes place at participating cinemas; such as the Dendy Opera Quays.

Adult ticket prices are around $19.90 depending on the cinema and film. Patrons who wish to watch several films may purchase Flexipass tickets to save money. However, keep in mind that all festival tickets will be non-refundable. There is the option to exchange tickets for a small fee up to an hour before the screening. The films have certain age restrictions such as the M15+ for patrons aged 15 and up, and 18+ for those ages 18 and up.

Dendy Opera Quays will be the major cinema for the event – located at East Circular Quay in Sydney. Other venues for 2019 include the Addison Road Picture House and the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre. All the venues selected for the Sydney Latin American Film Festival are wheelchair-friendly.
