The Morelia International Film Festival (FICM) is a film festival founded in 2003 in the city of Morelia, capital of the state of Michoacán, Mexico. It aims to promote new talents in national cinema, increasing the cinematographic offer for Mexican and international audiences and to contribute to the promotion of cultural and tourist activities in the state of Michoacán.
The 19th edition of FICM will be held from October 27 to November 1, 2021.
Only works directed by Mexican citizens or legal residents in Mexico can compete. Works registered in previous editions of FICM, filmed for promotional purposes, that have been presented on television, commercially exhibited, distributed on DVD or on the Internet for free are not accepted. It is okay if they have been shared over online with a restricted user code.
The Impulso Morelia section of the Morelia International Film Festival (FICM) presents an exclusive program of Mexican feature films in post-production in order to offer international visibility to the proposals and create a space for the exchange of ideas between Mexican filmmakers and professionals from the film scene world.
The competitive sections of Short Film, Documentary, Mexican Feature Film and Michoacan Section represent the essence of the festival, which has become one of the most important forums to promote emerging filmmakers in our country. The program is complemented by a selection of Mexican and international premieres, retrospectives by various directors, films from the Critics’ Week at the Cannes Festival, conferences and special screenings.
