The INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL VILLA DE LEDESMA is a cultural event that seeks to become the most important event of the year in the north of Salamanca.

The aim of the Festival is to bring the rural scene to the big screen and to bring back to prominence those towns and villages that enjoyed splendour in times gone by.

The current rural situation and the now known as Empty Spain are the main concerns for the Festival, which offers itself as a means of communication to make these regions known and popular again in order to achieve a change of trend.
