The Panama International Film Festival (known as IFF Panama) is a mostly Ibero-American film festival held annually in Panama City, since 2012. It is considered an audiovisual showcase that encourages the evolution of national cinema and contributes to the spread of Latin American cinema.
In its eighth edition in 2019, over 74 films from 51 countries were shown. The films presented at the IFF stand out for having been awarded at prestigious festivals such as Cannes, Toronto, Venice, San Sebastian and Berlin.
IFF projections are developed in different parts of Panama City. Some of its headquarters have been:
- National theater
- Anita Villaláz Theater
- Balboa Theater
- Cinépolis Multiplaza
- Gladys Vidal Theater
- Athenaeum City of Knowledge
- Public spaces
- Mirador del Pacífico
- Cinta Costera
The Panama International Film Festival announced for the sixth consecutive year its First Look industry section; dedicated to support work in the postproduction stage exclusively. Filmmakers from Central American countries and Caribbean islands can apply their feature films to the IFF Panama industry section, 'Work In Progress', from November 11, 2019 until January 31, 2020.
IFF Panama, in its continuous desire to strengthen the growing audiovisual industry and be a platform for the development of projects in Central America and the Caribbean, has funds to support the completion of its films.
This section of the Panama International Film Festival will deliver the cash prize to support postproduction. In addition, the winner will travel to Cannes to screen his film in the largest film market in the world, the Marché du Film of the Cannes Film Festival.
