Ibero-America:
a region in the Americas comprising countries or territories where Spanish or Portuguese is the predominant language, usually former territories of Spain or Portugal.

The Ibero-American Film Festival Miami was created in 2016 under its previous name, Indie Pasión Festival. By 2019, this small but mighty one-day event grew into four full days packed with screenings, forums, special events and networking mixers.

Our mission is to exhibit and celebrate films from Latin America, Spain and Portugal that possess a high-level of artistry and are otherwise noteworthy for communicating a meaningful and powerful message of social impact.
IAFFM supports the education and creative development of local and Ibero-American filmmakers by providing access to training and networking opportunities.

The 5th annual Iberoamerican Film Festival Miami IAFFM will take place in Miami, Florida from the 8th to the 13th of November 2022.

IAFFM is a platform that will present the best US LatinX and IberoX feature films, shorts and documentaries to promote our diversity, our stories, our social impact message, our cultures, our flavors and our emotions.

Argentina will be this year guest country, for that reason, we want to pay tribute to the trajectory of Argentina cinema.

We will have special screenings, honoring guest, masterclasses and a lot more.

Go ahead, don't miss your chance!
See you in November!
