Traditionally, the Cartagena International Film Festival in Colombia has been the most important in the region and there was a time (in the 1970's) when stars like François Truffaut attended as guests and competitors.

 Colombia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)

Its cause was mainly due to mounting tensions between partisan groups, reignited by the murder of Jorge Eliécer Gaitán in April 9th of 1948 an event later known as the Bogotazo, and it claimed the lives of at least 180,000 Colombians.
After experiencing decades of steady growth (average GDP growth exceeded 4% in the 1970-1998 period), Colombia experienced a recession in 1999 (the first full year of negative growth since 1929), and the recovery from that recession was long and painful.
