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 6th annual Ibero-American Film Festival Miami (IAFFM) will take place in Miami, Florida from the 2nd to the 10th of February, 2024.
IAFFM is a platform that will present the best Ibero feature films, shorts and documentaries to promote our diversity, our stories, our social impact message, our cultures, our flavors and our emotions.
Spain will be this year guest country, for that reason, we want to pay tribute to the trajectory of Spanish cinema.
We will have special screenings, honoring guest, masterclasses and a lot more.
