The Montevideo Fantastic Film Festival is the first film festival in Uruguay dedicated to the dissemination of national and international works, related to horror, fantasy and science fiction genres. Its objective is to annually present independent and ultra-independent productions that are often considered "minor" and that hardly access to the commercial and cultural circuit.

The Festival has sections dedicated to short and long feature films in competition, as well as exhibitions and parallel shows where classics are exhibited, also as a tribute to different figures of the genre and presented by various specialists.

Montevideo Fantastic Film Festival has been declared of Cultural Interest by the Ministry of Education and Culture, of Municipal Interest by the Intendance of Montevideo, and of Tourist Interest by the Ministry of Tourism in Uruguay.

It had spaces in the Punta del Este International Film Festival, LatinUy Film Festival ("Cinema Fantasy" section, in La Barra), Piriápolis de Película International Film Festival ("FantaPiria" section), as well as in several foreign genre festivals ("Buenos Aires Rojo Sangre" from ARGENTINA; Brasilia International Fantastic Film Festival from BRAZIL; "FIXIÓN Fest", from Santiago, CHILE; "Zinema Zombie Fest" from Bogotá, COLOMBIA).
