The International Film Festival Panama Foundation/ Fundación IFF Panamá (FIP) is a non-profit, non- governmental organization that works to strengthen Panama’s national film industry through the platform of the International Film Festival of Panama (IFF Panama). The mission of the FIP is to expand cinema as a tool for educational, economic, and social development. FIP generates changes that impact society and establishes Panama as an epicenter of cinema in the Latin American Region. FIP believes that filmmaking is the most powerful, artistic, technical and influential manifestation of recent times, and that cinema, when developed for good, changes societies, countries and lives. Living and experiencing cinema that speaks a common language, reflects the diversity of cultural rituals and traditions, identifies and validates the uniqueness of people, in all of their personal existence. By strengthening the mechanisms that allow us to see ourselves through the framework of a moving image, our identity and self- esteem are inevitably empowered.
