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.
Like many film festivals around the world, our 2020 festival was cancelled due to the global pandemic. Our 2021 festival is being reinvented with a full hybrid program that is safe and also provides an easy way for Ibero-American and local filmmakers to showcase their work, gain a new audience and network with established filmmakers and executives.
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 4th annual Iberoamerican Film Festival Miami IAFFM will take place in Miami, Florida from the 4th to the 7th of November 2021.
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.
Mexico will be this year guest country, for that reason, we want to pay tribute to the trajectory of Mexican women in cinema.
We will have special screenings, honoring guest, masterclasses and a lot more.
Go ahead, don't miss your chance!
See you in November!
