    This article includes interviews with three contemporary Uruguayan film directors, Guillermo Casanova, Federico Veiroj and Silvana Camors. They answer questions about the state of cinema in contemporary Uruguay, offering varying perspectives on different aspects of Uruguayan film culture, from issues surrounding funding and distribution to the role of digital technology and the importance of maintaining film archives. Although the film-makers identify numerous difficulties for Uruguayan film-makers, especially at the level of institutional and financial support, they none- theless remain grimly optimistic that Uruguayan cinema has a future.
