Feature film festival

In recent decades, and at one time to the emergence of new technologies that have ended up scanning most of the processes of the film, the documentary has known a notorious and systematic growth around the world. In our country, and for more than one decade, a production before linked almost exclusively to fiction has been swelling their ranks with new topics, new approaches, new geographies, new dilemmas.

Simply put, films we do not forget so fast. Films that we get sucked into and go for a voyage with. Films that we feel gave us more than just the satisfaction of being glued to the screen.
