The International Film Festival kicked off in Panama yesterday for the 3rd year. During the week there will be films from around the world shown at the Teatro Nacional, Cinepolis Multiplaza, open air projections at Plaza Cincuentenario in Casco Viejo, and a few other locations. The same films have been shown at prestigious film festivals such as Cannes, Toronto (TIFF), Sundance, San Sebastian, and more. Many of the directors and actors in the films will be present to introduce the films before they are shown.
