A way to revitalize the Montevidean summer, a meeting place with the other, a space to enjoy what we like the most: Summer Film Festival.

Organized by Uruguay Campus Film, it was born in 2022 with the aim of strengthening exhibition spaces for short films and promoting exchanges between national filmmakers.

We understand that the audiovisual reality in Uruguay is arousing more and more interest among themselves and others, that more and more spaces are needed where filmmakers can approach a new audience and that they can get to know the national work in all its forms. On these bases the Summer Film Festival is founded, which in this second edition will include a category dedicated to international short films to have a broader and richer cinematography.

Workshops / Talks.
The Summer Film Festival is an opportunity to set up training spaces where filmmakers tell us about their experiences filming and the public can share that common space with them. A relaxed training space, away from the classroom, where filmmakers and viewers can talk and learn from that place.

Cinema in the neighborhood.
The Cinema in the Neighborhood section, which opens the Summer Film Festival, proposes a return to neighborhood cinema and the enjoyment of street art: with the collaboration of Efecto Cine, a giant screen and sound equipment will be set up in the alley final by Edil Hugo Prato and the selected feature film "Hilda's Vacation" by Agustín Banchero will be screened.

The Summer Film Festival synthesizes a long history of approaching the public that includes various screenings of shorts in events and installations that we have developed during the more than 10 years of UCF, such as: Film Day, Experimental Cinema, UCF is Shown, among many others. But its clearest antecedents undoubtedly go back to the third edition of Encontrá al Director que Llevás Dentro and the second edition of Cine en el Barrio.
