Frontera Films Corporation from the city of Cúcuta is organizing the 7th International Film Festival of Norte de Santander.

Welcome to the participants of this sixth edition in 2024. We are seeking enthusiasts and professionals in the audiovisual world who want to take part in the call for entries for the 6th International Film Festival of Norte de Santander.

The 7th International Film Festival of Norte de Santander is organized by Frontera Films Corporation. It emerges from the need to create a film industry in the region, from the Colombian-Venezuelan border and from an educational and training perspective. Our goal is to promote cinema in the department of Norte de Santander and the border region, making it the most important festival in the northeastern part of Colombia.

With the aim of showcasing Norte de Santander as a department that engages in audiovisual dynamics, we will have hybrid and semi-presential events in the cities of Cúcuta, Los Patios, Pamplona, and Villa del Rosario, as well as virtual events. Therefore, similar to last year, the festival will feature in-person screenings of short and feature films.


There will be conversations, workshops, and talks with professionals from the national film industry.

The juries will consist of qualified individuals and professionals in the national film industry, as well as representatives from the festival organization.

More events will be announced soon.

The respective honorable mentions and awards in each category will be awarded and announced in due course.

The festival reserves the right to improve the festival awards

The festival will consist of a program featuring various competitive and non-competitive sections. Cash prizes will be awarded in the competitive section for the best short films. National short films will be eligible for cash prizes.

The sections include:

Short Films in Competition:

National Fiction Competition
National Animation Competition
International Fiction Competition
National Documentary Competition
Experimental Short Films Competition
Long Cinema:

Non-competitive selection "New Social Dynamics":
Short and feature films


Registration will be done online via Festhome. If selected, it is required that the projection format be MP4. It is essential to provide a download link upon selection.

For the curation of short films, aspects such as production level, technical quality, content, and originality will be taken into account.

To submit short films, registration must be done through FESTHOME.

Upon receiving the short films, if your film is selected, the organization will send filmmakers an attached file that must be signed for authorization of the work's circulation in the festival.

The festival reserves the right to modify the terms and conditions of the call for entries if circumstances require it, always with the aim of improving the event.
