FICM reveals its 18th edition’s
Official Selection

Since 2003, the Morelia International Film Festival (FICM) has worked tirelessly to promote Mexican filmmakers through its Official Selection, made up entirely of Mexican films.

This year, the FICM is pleased to announce that 91 films are part of the competition at the 18th edition of the festival: 11 works in the Michoacan Section, 60 titles in the Mexican Short Film Section (10 animation, 14 documentaries and 36 fiction films), 11 titles in the Mexican Documentary Film Section and 9 titles in the Mexican Feature Film Section.

Of 729 registered titles, 24% were done by female directors (176). In the Official Selection of the 18th FICM, 38% of the films were directed by women.

FICM celebrates 18 years of being a unique platform for the promotion of filmmakers in our country. Its sections in competition remain as the foundation of the festival, since our mission is to promote new Mexican talents whose works can cross cultural and aesthetic boundaries.

In order to guarantee the safety of festival goers and faithful compliance with health protocols, this 18th FICM will take place in a five-day hybrid version, with screenings in Morelia city and virtual screenings through Cinépolis Klic, Canal 22 and FilminLatino.

This edition celebrates once again that #MoreliaEsCineMexicano  (Morelia is Mexican cinema).
