This city is without a doubt one of the most important cultural cradles in the world and provides a great framework for the presentation of ever more interesting productions from the Central American region.

The festival will take place during the usual dates in November with the hope that our loyal audience will continue coming. The public will again be able to view the most recent works of Central American film.

As in previous years, there are parallel non-competitive sections, namely "Pioneers of Central American Cinema”, “Works in Process", "Guest Film", "Bonus Films" and "Latin American View". These are a selection of Latin American works that Illustrate the reality of its inhabitants. All these sections are duly explained within the rules of participation.

The guest country of honor for 2019 is Mexico.
