Created in 1954, it was not considered to be a competitive festival, it was just an exhibition of selected international movies; during this stage the event was named Festival Cinematográfico Internacional (International Cinematographic Festival). The festival continued in this way until 1959, when the Asociación de Cronistas Cinematográficos de la Argentina took charge of running it; during this time the festival was approved and recognized by FIAPF. In 1964 the festival moved temporarily to Buenos Aires, and the name was changed to Festival Cinematográfico Internacional de la República Argentina (International Cinematographic Festival of the Argentine Republic). In 1966 there was a military coup d'etat in Argentina; in 1968 and 1970 the Instituto de Cine took charge of the festival. From 1967 to 1969 the festival was cancelled because there were other festivals in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. There were some attempts to reactivate it, but this did not happen until 1996 when the festival returned with new renovations.
