The BBVA Mexico Foundation aims to promote and foster culture and the arts in the country. Through his BBVA Art Grant (formerly Proyecto Bi), BBVA provides an economic stimulus, unique in the country, for the production and promotion of initiatives with an outstanding track record; For this reason, the activities carried out by the Morelia International Film Festival (FICM) through FICM Presenta have been benefited by this scholarship.

Working together we can flatten the COVID-19 curve. #StayHome #Stayathome. #StayHome.
