About the IAFFM 

The IAFFM held its first edition in 2016 as the Indie Pasión Festival. It started as a one-day event and has grown into six full days packed with screenings, forums, special events, and networking mixers. The Festival’s mission is to exhibit and celebrate films from Latin America, Spain, and Portugal that possess a high level of artistry and are otherwise noteworthy for communicating a meaningful and powerful message of social impact.
