FICM 2022: Dates and announcement

Like every year, the Morelia International Film Festival (FICM) is preparing to be a meeting point for Mexican and international filmmakers, cinephiles and new promises in the industry. Its 20th edition, which will take place from October 22 to 29, has already launched its call for all filmmakers seeking to participate in the competitive sections. Here we tell you everything about the dates of FICM 2022

The official call includes several categories depending on the genre, format and even the origin of the filmmakers. These are:

Mexican short film. Only those completed between 2021 and 2022 will be accepted. The maximum duration is 40 minutes and you can work in animation, documentary and fiction genres.

Films as important as Nudo mixteco have been part of the festival

Mexican Documentary. The minimum duration is 40 minutes. Its realization had to end after July 23, 2021. Those without some kind of premiere in Mexico will receive higher priority.

Michoacán section. Regardless of the format (short film, documentary or feature film), the works made by Michoacans will be part of the competition in this section.

Mexican Feature Film. Suitable for productions that last more than 60 minutes and have not had any type of commercial exhibition or festivals. Its completion should have ended after July 23, 2021

Thanks to FICM’s partnership with the United States Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, the winning short films in the Animation, Documentary and Fiction categories, as well as the Mexican Documentary Section, will be able to compete for an Oscar nomination of 2023.

In addition to these categories, this year there will be the Michoacan Short Film Script Contest. As its name indicates, it will be a category for Michoacán authors. Papers should not exceed 10 pages.

Some considerations to take into account:

  • In the competitive sections, works that have already had an exhibition or any type of presentation through television, physical formats and the Internet are not accepted.
  • The registered works may participate in international exhibitions in which FICM participates, for example, the 2023 Cannes Film Festival.
  • The selected list will be made public on the official site on Friday, August 26, 2022.

As happened last year, FICM will offer face-to-face and digital screenings. In this way, it seeks to continue complying with the health guidelines originated by the current pandemic. The works must be registered here before the Friday, July 8, 2022 at 5:00 p.m..
