Evaluation Here the focus is on Central and South American films; special country focus or topic. Brazil and its cinematic production are especially prominent. Since there are hardly any other festivals dealing exclusively with Latin American film, this event, taking place in Tübingen, Stuttgart, Freiburg and Reutlingen at the same time, is of major importance for those interested in this field.
