Description:
The Morelia International Film Festival (FICM) emerged from the need to create a unique meeting point in Mexico for the cinematographic community, the people of Michoacán, and international filmmakers. FICM started in 2003 with the goal of establishing a forum to promote up-and-coming Mexican cinema talents, to create incentives and cultural opportunities for the Mexican and international public, and to display the cultural richness of the state of Michoacán. In addition to the screenings of each of the films in the different sections, every year FICM celebrates the career of a recognized filmmaker who attends the festival to share his or her experience with young filmmakers and the public. Among the distinguished directors who have attended FICM since its first edition are: Olivier Assayas, Serge Bromberg, Geraldine Chaplin, Alfonso Cuarón, Doris Dörrie, Bruno Dumont, Stephen Frears, Gael García Bernal, Terry Gilliam, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Salma Hayek, Todd Haynes, Werner Herzog, Mike Hodges, Abbas Kiarostami, Dieter Kosslick, Tommy Lee Jones, Diego Luna, Cristian Mungiu, Gregory Nava, Manoel de Oliveira, Arthur Penn, Marisa Paredes, Nicolas Philibert, Sally Potter, Édgar Ramírez, Carlos Reygadas, Raúl Ruiz, Seifollah Samadian, Volker Schlöndorff, Barbet Schroeder, Steven Soderbergh, Whit Stillman, Quentin Tarantino, Béla Tarr, Bertrand Taviernier, Guillermo del Toro, Fernando Trueba, Luis Valdez and Gus Van Sant.
