Mar del Plata International Film Festival is produced by the National Institute of Cinema and Audiovisual Arts (INCAA) of Argentina and is the only Latin American Competitive Festival recognized by the International Federation of Film Producers Association / FIAPF (Class A). The Festival’s objective is to present “uncensored cinema that invites us to look at others and ourselves beyond our individual reality to understand what connects us.” 

Two of the competitive sections are applicable to Canadian films: Official International Feature Film Competition and the Altered States Competition for feature films, medium-length films, and short films that explore new narrative forms and innovative film languages. 

Telefilm Canada recognizes the selection of a feature film in the festival for applications to its International Promotion Program.
