The International Film Festival of Uruguay aims to create and raise interest in cinema by introducing worthwhile films to a massive audience, making a positive contribution to the artistic forms of film and video, and stimulating intelligent film-viewing among the general public. It also aims to present films of merit which might not be otherwise shown in this region, to gain attention and publicity for the films screened and to assist in their wider distribution in this region. Its central purpose is to be a framework for meetings and discussions of regional projects of relevance and to promote better understanding among people and nations through the film medium.
