Cinema Sānitās - Essay


Essay Contest

During our experiences as an IFF Panama team, we have heard time and again how a film or a Q&A with one of our guests deeply changed perspectives on life for many in our audience. The sparkle in their eyes and vibrant voices proved to us the irrefutable power of cinema.


Through this first edition, we invite you to express yourself and share with us in no more than 500 words; based on the movies you watched on CINEMA SĀNITĀS (September series): Why does cinema matter? or How does cinema impact my daily life?.
