The Todos Santos Film Festival (FCTS) celebrates two decades as the undisputed epicenter of South Californian, Mexican, and Latin American cinema in Baja California Sur. More than a festival, we are a cultural movement that has captivated audiences and film professionals alike.

Our selection of feature films, documentaries, and short films, many of them exclusive premieres and award-winners at international festivals, is rigorously curated to offer you the best of contemporary cinema.

We have been honored by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (Golden Globes) for our programming excellence and commitment to the community.

Iconic figures such as Diego Luna, Dolores Heredia, and Tenoch Huerta have shared their talent and passion at our festival, enriching the cinematic dialogue.

Through our Leonardo Perel Film School and various community activities, we foster education, creativity, and a love for cinema at all ages.

FCTS is more than a festival; it is a transformative experience.
In its 20th anniversary year, as in recent years, the Todos Santos International Film Festival will also be presented, within the same dates, in Cabo San Lucas and La Paz, BCS.

We invite you to immerse yourself in the fascinating world of cinema, discover new voices, and become part of a vibrant community that celebrates diversity and creativity.

Let's celebrate 20 years of the Todos Santos Film Festival together and be part of the history of cinema in Baja California Sur!

Florence Short Film Festival is an event dedicated to short films.

Born as a limelight for young independent directors, it quickly established itself as an international festival, counting among its guests and jurors great personalities from the world of academicism and film criticism, as well as renowned actors, dubbers and producers. Every year hundreds of directors from all over the world have submitted their works to be selected and run for the three categories of “Fiction”, “Animation” and “Documentary”, and thus compete for the Jury Prize (with cash prize) and for the Audience Award.

Throughout its eight editions, Florence Short Film Festival has received the patronage of the most important local institutions (the Municipality of the City of Florence and the Tuscany Region) and, more importantly, has been able to intercept a large transversal audience that has voted its loyalty to the festival every year: the audience of FSFF numbers hundreds of people and embraces both the university student who wants to live the cultural life of the city, and to the cinephile who wants to discover the directors of tomorrow, thanks to the varied proposal that the festival can offer.

Since the 8th edition Florence Short Film Festival is proud to offer masterclasses by guests of the caliber of Alessandro Roia, Giovanni Veronesi, Gianfranco Pannone and Alessandro Rak, demonstrating that teaching is a fundamental point for training the new directors of tomorrow and that the dissemination of cinematographic knowledge is at the basis of the intentions of the festival.

The 10th edition of the Florence Short Film Festival (6th, 7th, 8th February 2024 at the Cinema La Compagnia, Firenze) aims to bring the event to a further level by strengthening the internationality of the proposal, consolidating and expanding the public and involving famous personalities of Italian and international cinema.

Ugo Pagliai, actor, dubber

Muestra Intergaláctica Short Film Festival is a space where people can present their film projects of all kinds of genre.

It started as a small local show. Due to the response of the people and thanks to the support of sponsors, it has become an event with local, national and international short films.

The attendance to the Intergalactic Short Film Festival has increased edition after edition, initially with a unique function, however, since the edition of the year 2017, additional days were added to the festival in order to show content in a section of honorable mentions.

We have had more and more coverage by the media, and we hope in this edition to receive better and more productions from around the world, and of course a greater response from the public and satisfaction, as well as sharing the work of the filmmakers.
