Open call for the Morelia / IMCINE – Locarno Industry Academy International 2019

The Morelia / IMCINE – Locarno Industry Academy International workshop, an initiative that the Morelia International Film Festival (FICM) organizes since 2015 in collaboration with the Locarno Film Festival and the Mexican Film Institute (IMCINE), invites young professionals of the film industry to participate in its fifth edition.

The call will be open from May 23 to June 23, 2019, for young people interested in developing professionally in areas of sales, marketing, distribution, exhibition and film programming who are preferably already working in established companies.

The workshop, designed for eight participants from Mexico and the rest of Latin America, will take place from October 20 to 23, 2019, during the 17th edition of the FICM.

The Morelia / IMCINE – Locarno Industry Academy International workshop is part of the Industry Academy Latin America project, which aims to professionalize the Ibero-American film industry. Carried out with the support of the Ibermedia program, the Industry Academy Latin America consists of three specialization workshops during 2019. In October, the Morelia / IMCINE – Locarno Industry Academy International will be held in Mexico and the Sao Paulo Locarno Industry Academy International in Brazil. In December, the Chile Locarno Industry Academy International will take place.

All young professionals from Ibero-American countries who meet the participation requirements are invited to send their application. The calls for the Industry Academy of Chile and Brazil will open soon.
