Many summers ago, sometime between 1994 and 1999, a group of friends from Baio got together to shoot scenes for what would become a short film. They were all lovers of cinema and one member of the group carried out all of the behind-the-camera duties, including writing the script and the original music, directing and even asked for a loan to buy the editing equipment (which consisted of two VHS players).
The festival held its 35th edition in 2017. It is a tremendous achievement which was reflected in the full range of cultural activities that the organisers prepared. In 2017 the Festiletras event incorporated the celebration of the centenary of the death of the poet Eduardo Pondal by organising 35 acts as part of the 100 events for the 100 years since the death of the Bard of Bergantiños.
