"Delta has been supporting the Colombian Film Festival in New York for the past three years, and in 2015 we are honored to be the main sponsor of one of the most important cinema events for the U.S. Hispanic community," said Gail Grimmett, Delta's senior vice president-New York. "Delta is an active part of the culture of New York, and we support activities that enrich the life of its over two million Hispanics neighbors."

New York is crucial to the airline's the growth strategy to Latin America. From its hub at John F. Kennedy International Airport, Delta offers more than 160 weekly flights to 21 destinations in Latin America, including five weekly flights to Bogota, Colombia.

"Every year, the increasingly popular Colombian International Film Festival attracts attention from celebrities, draws in international media and entirely sells out," said Juan Carvajal, director of the Festival. "The Festival seeks to exalt the best of our talent and film industry. This year, is a real pleasure to honor the memory of our Nobel Prize, Gabriel García Márquez, by opening the festival with a documentary film in his honor. In Tribeca, we will live through film his wonderful magical realism."
