The film festivals are manifestations of healthy cultural activities that occur in one region. The movies teach us many lessons that cannot be learned otherwise. Like a story of a novel, the movie does have a storyline or a script on which it is based.
The movies are showcased in cinemas for public viewership or can be accessed via CDs at home. However, sometimes film festivals are arranged that take out the best of movies and showcase them to public.
Each country or region has a peculiar style of organizing their famous film festivals. We will briefly mention here some South American film festivals along with brief descriptions of each.
