It is a film festival in the city of Goiânia , state of Goiás , which , with a free program , believes itself, in the limit, as a social and artistic intervention in an urban environment .

As an international film festival, Fronteira seeks to intervene in the dissemination of the film experience today, taking it as an experience of freedom, opportunity, power and becoming, to some extent, acting as a counter-flow to the processes of hardening of relations between expression and market, art and industry, and consumer freedom.

Thus, seeking an encounter with whatever is on the border of cinema (whether of language, geographic, political and social boundaries), the Festival holds annually an international competitive exhibition for films produced in any format, theme or duration, seeking to interact and confront the inumerable ways, possibilities and visions proposed by cinema held today around the world . It is the attempt to bring together all those movies that stands above all on the edge of the world and life.
