At the Morelia International Film Festival (FICM) we recognize that guaranteeing the right of people to live a life free of violence and discrimination, especially for traditionally excluded populations, such as women and people of sexual diversity, is a vital need; That is why, with the advice of the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) in Mexico, we developed a protocol for the prevention and care of harassment and sexual harassment to ensure inclusive spaces free of sexual and gender-based violence in the different activities. and FICM projects that are carried out throughout the year.
Said protocol is based on good practices and international recommendations for the guarantee and protection of fundamental rights.
In accordance with the protocol, FICM has established the Committee for Prevention and Attention to Harassment and Sexual Harassment and Unwanted Behaviors, which has integrated actions to provide attention, accompaniment and channeling against prohibited or unwanted behaviors, such as discrimination, harassment and sexual harassment, as well as measures to prevent possible reprisals, to contribute to a climate of trust and healthy coexistence during the 20th edition of FICM.
We are aware that our commitment to the promotion of cinema must be with a gender perspective and from the principle of equality and non-discrimination, to guarantee not only the same opportunities for women and men, but also safe spaces for all people regardless of gender. , identity, sexual orientation, appearance, ethnic origin, nationality, age or any other characteristic or condition.
In this way, FICM advocates a space of zero tolerance for any type of violence, particularly violence against women and gender-based violence, as well as for promoting actions that allow building inclusive and egalitarian communities. We want to contribute to the strengthening of the social fabric through the promotion of cinema in safe and violence-free spaces.
Let's make this edition a memorable film experience in an atmosphere of conviviality and well-being.
