1st edition of the International Film Festival FICP in Guatemala, with international and free projections.

We are doing a FILM FESTIVAL!

We are bringing one of the most renowned regional Film Festivals to Guatemala, and we are on a last drive funding to ensure we can do it in the magnitude we intended!


Who are you?

We are FICP (Festival International de Cine de Puebla). We are an International Film Festival open to everyone and are the first Festival in Mexico working alongside organizations who take care of people with social disorders (drug abuse, mental disorder, physiological disabilities).


We are the first film festival in history with a section for the visually disabled. FICP are part of a Latin American Network of Mobile Cinemas; together we guarantee access of people from all backgrounds and regions to cinema. In only 3 years, we have positioned FICP as one of the most important Film Festivals in Mexico. 



What are you doing? 

From September 27 to October 5 2013, FICP will hold its first edition out of Mexico.  Because of popular demand, the place chosen for this milestone event is Guatemala.  Last year, FICP organized itinerant projections in Guatemala City, Antigua Guatemala, Coban and Huehuetenango, and the warm welcoming and response by the Chapines (Guatemalans) ensured a return.


Together with ARTEFACTO, a Guatemalan non-profit association dedicated to promote the arts in the country, we intend to promote cinema nation-wide and generate filmmaking jobs. We aim to achieve this with programs such as Cine Para Todos (Cinema for Everyone) which is a platform to discover new talents and promote tourism in isolated areas of the country.  For this year we are also working with Ttrino Foundation, a society focused on preventing substance abuse, eating disorders and self-destructive behaviour, and a new section will screen relevant short films to spread awareness on those issues.



What do you need?

Organizing film festivals in Guatemala is extremely difficult. Due to the absence of a national film entity, support for projects such as ours is close to non-existent.


This is why, with 40 days to go, we have decided to start a 25- days last drive of donations to ensure that the First FICP Guatemala will happen at its full potential.  The festival itself is not in jeopardy, but some of its most expensive parts are, such as bringing reputed filmmakers from overseas and the planned workshops to train aspiring Guatemalan artists.  Hotels have to be booked, venues have to be arranged and educational material has to be printed.


We have tried normal funding methods in Guatemala, but we haven’t still reach the necessary amount to assure that we can run this festival to its maximum potential, so now we are reaching out to you and the internet to keep our dream alive!


¡Porque el cine lo hacemos todos!


What can I do?


You can do a lot! Either you can donate a few dollars to the project (Check the list of perks to the right), or if you can’t at the moment, you can always share this with your friends and tell them about us.  And, if you happen to be in Guatemala during the festival. Bienvenido!
