The Tblisi International Film Festival was first organised in 2000. Its main aim is to introduce the most important artists, trends, and phenomena of contemporary artistic cinema to the Georgian public. It is one of the biggest events in the Caucasus region promoting contemporary film. So far, many famous directors have been guests of the festival, among them Leos Carax, Ulrike Ottinger, Hugh Hudson, Bob Rafelson, and Mike Leigh.
