IFIF main goals
Our nonprofit Film Festival is designed to educate and inspire audiences about critical issues. Through film, we learn new ways to see our world and in that way challenging each individual as well as Environmental communities to work together to increase awareness and affect social change.
IF IF Mission in 2011
is to give this region a new influx of tourism and national and international media coverage. Montemor-o-Novo displays a beautiful countryside, a rich history of religious orders, rural nobility, beautiful 17th century manor houses, convents and churches. Today the place seems to develop into a new culture hub in Portugal.
In selecting films
for the festival, IFIF concentrates equally on artistic merit and Sustainable solutions content. The festival encourages filmmakers around the world to address all social matter in their work and present films from both new and established international and local filmmakers.
