In order to disseminate this diversity, the event selects films of proven quality that have been recognised and won awards at international festivals.

Most of the films come from the independent film industry and from cinematography which does not usually reach our screens.

The first editions of the festival screened films like Salomon Gaenor by Paul Morrison, Promises by Justine Shapiro, and the winner of the 1999 Oscar for Best Documentary, The Last days directed by James Moll and produced by Steven Spielberg.

There is no other festival of this kind in Europe that has had the continuity or growth that this event has experienced.
