The film's cultural need for this seaside resort led to the birth of the FECIP - Portoviejo Film Festival, which will be a film event in the beautiful and tourist town of Portoviejo, on the coasts of Ecuador, which hopes to gather thousands of spectators to enjoy the world cinema. We have the sponsorship of the Municipality of Portoviejo to make this nascent festival a great party where public and art makers share for four days of magic on the big screen. Come and enjoy the cinema on the shore of the paradisiacal beaches of Portoviejo!
