Founded in 1980 with the aim of contributing to the visibility of the cultural riches of the South, the Fribourg International Film Festival today keeps the same objectives, since the need to show films from Africa, Latin America and Asia is still imperative for the cultural diversity of Switzerland.


The FIFF is one of the four most important film festivals in Switzerland. It has become a reference due to its diversity – ranging from the film d’auteur to the popular cinema - while being dedicated to the general public. For three decades, its quality and history have given it an excellent reputation on national and international scenes.
