The Festival is anchored on its mission to be a mirror (salamin) of peace (salam) in Mindanao, thus the name Salamindanaw. It aims to raise awareness and promote international cinema with emphasis on strengthening the cultural ties between Mindanao and its Southeast Asian neighbors which by tradition are linked by business and economic cooperation; to support the nascent film movement in Mindanao and its neighboring regions; to engage the public in both popular and critical discourse on art and cinema and their transformative power to shape ideas about society, thus encouraging cultural diversity and the plurality of creative expressions; and To create a development platform for emerging talents in Southeast Asia.
