Entre Dos Mundos brings Ibero-American cinematography to one of the most beautiful cities in the world!

Florence is the most culturally vibrant city in Europe and has been rewarded for the quality and attractiveness of its museums, theatres and cinemas. Entre Dos Mundos has chosen it as the stage to present the best Ibero-American feature films, shorts and documentaries to promote our diversity, our stories, our social impact messages, our cultures, our flavours and our emotions.

The festival mission is to exhibit and celebrate films from Ibero-America that possess a high-level of artistry and are otherwise noteworthy for communicating a meaningful and powerful message of social impact. We are looking for stories that stay with the audience after leaving the cinema, that challenge the way we think and feel about the world around us.

We aim to bring Ibero-American cinema closer to the Italian public and to make known the great talent of its protagonists and the very high quality of its productions. The audience of our festival is cultured, curious and always open to new and alternative film proposals.

The fifth competitive edition of the Florence Ibero-American Film Festival will take place from September 29th to October 2nd 2022, as every year, at the Cinema La Compagnia, located in the historic centre of Florence, a stone's throw from the Duomo. La Compagnia is a nerve centre and a true home of cinema and festivals in Tuscany!

To celebrate the centenary of the Embassy of Mexico in Italy, Mexico will be the guest country of this edition.

The 2022 edition is enriched by two new programmes in collaboration with our partner festivals, a Florence-San Miguel Allende Artist Residency in partnership with the Guanajuato Film Festival - GIFF and Sentiero Film Factory and a production project implemented with the Girona Film Festival.

We will have special screenings, honouring guests, masterclasses and a lot more.

Go ahead, don't miss your chance!
See you in September!
