The Festival was founded in 1986, by Sharon Mujica, since 2008 the festival is directed by Miguel Rojas-Sotelo sharing both classics and new releases from different genres of a rich and prolific Latin American cinema tradition. The Festival invites filmmakers  from many of the 26 countries of the region, it has shown films in 13 languages, and has become a bridge between universities and cultural centers in the region.
