It is the fourth edition of the festival and IFF Panama will screen more than sixty films that have been presented and recognized with awards at prestigious festivals such as Cannes, Toronto, Sundance and San Sebastian among others. IFF Panama will also offer national, regional and world premieres of films from the Central American region.

The festival is mainly located in the capital’s Casco Viejo (Old City), an area that along with the iconic Panama Canal has been boosting the country’s tourist industry.
