Suzuki Auto has teamed with the New York International Latino Film Festival (NYILFF) and Cinedulce.com to host its first nationwide animation contest, Animate! -- La vida Suzuki, which will run through February 29, 2008 and conclude with the winning animation being featured at the 2008 NYILFF in July.
