Forum of Indigenous Peoples 2022


The Morelia International Film Festival (FICM) held the Forum of Indigenous Peoples 2022 with a selection of films that explore the diversity of the indigenous world in Mexico. 

In 2022, the Forum's selection of films reflects stylistic and narrative concerns that converge with fundamental themes of the contemporary collective life of indigenous peoples: identity, gender, migration, and cultural processes of appropriation and transmission of traditions, language, and customs.
