Conceived in its beginnings as an International Television and Historical Cinema Week of the Kingdom of León, the event was received with acceptance and skepticism, in its first edition of 2009. Two years later, in 2011 the second edition was put on its feet. On this occasion the contest cut his name, going to simplify it in II Festival of Cinema and Television Kingdom of León. After this long period came what would be a reality, the third edition of the year 2016. Nine days of cinema, five screening rooms, 95 titles to contest and a new section, the Portuguese short films. 2017 welcomed the fourth edition, achieving one of the fundamental objectives of the project, that the appointment with the good cinema was annual. The fifth edition of the festival was held in May 2018. An edition in which the contest grew in days, number of projections, objective audiences, sections to contest and parallel activities.
