12 International Film Festival of Morelia
The Morelia International Film Festival (FICM) is a unique meeting point in Mexico for the cinematographic community, the people of Michoacán and international filmmakers. FICM’s mission is to promote new talents in Mexican cinema, to increase the offering of quality cinema and to contribute to the cultural and tourist activities in the state of Michoacán.
Sections in Competition
FICM has four official sections in competition, all of which involve exclusively Mexican films:
- Michoacán Section (for filmmakers who reside in Michoacán)
- Mexican Short Film
- Mexican Documentary
- Mexican Feature Film
Since its beginning in 2003, FICM established a solid partnership with the Critics’ Week of the Cannes Film Festival, which has promoted Mexican filmmakers such as Alejandro Gonzalez Iñárritu, Guillermo del Toro and Fernando Eimbcke. A selection of films from the Critics’ Week is presented each year at FICM with the presence of some of their participants. Likewise, the Critics’ Week shows some of FICM’s winning films.
