Festival

The Menorca International Film Festival (FICME) is the the seventh art annual event on the island. Now, in its fifth edition, and with sustainability as its banner, we are aware of the positive effect that cinema can have on social consciousness. We focus the FICME towards reflection through films to make Menorca and the world a better place to live.

For this reason, we have set ourselves the goal of achieving the maximum Sustainable Development Goals. A United Nations initiative called Agenda 2030 to improve our world in cross-cutting issues.

Official Section

The Festival has two contest sections:

Balears en Curt

Balearic short film competition.

Balears en Curt

Balearic short film competition.

The basic requirements are :

  • The duration of the audiovisual work should not exceed 20 minutes
  • It was shot between 2018 and 2020 , to compete in the fifth edition of the Festival.
  • Have Spanish subtitles embedded in case they were shot in any other language.
  • Documentary, live image fiction and animation proposals are welcome.

The works are completely free. But those of social or environmental nature will be positively evaluated, following the line of sustainability launched last year. And this year it is strengthened by the commitment of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals .

The short films will be screened with a double subtitle: Spanish and English .

Jury | Awards

Each year, recognized professionals in the audiovisual sector join the team to make up the jury. They choose the winners of each edition and make an objective assessment of their decision.

Venues

FICME is an island event. For this reason, with each edition we try to expand the range of spaces and municipalities that host both the Festival and actions Menorca 365.

Ser presents a tota l’illa permet a menorquins i visitants conèixer espais únics i emblemàtics, sempre posant en valor les localitzacions a l’aire lliure que brinda Menorca. Les vols conèixer un poc més a fons?

Outdoor venues

The outdoor spaces are intended to publicize the landscape beauty of Menorca. Every corner of the island is special. And those who are eligible for the Festival’s screenings, it opens to the public from two aspects: the cinematic and the tourist.

This is why we select the best public spaces and turn them into outdoor cinemas for a week. And expand an experience that encompasses other attractions of the island, such as being a Starlight reservation, enjoying the Mediterranean or living on the Menorcan summer night .

The main outdoor spaces of the Menorca International Film Festival – Social & Sustainable are:

Pati de Sant Francesc

Annex to the Museum of Menorca and overlooking the port of Maó.

Castell de Sant Nicolau

The Sant Nicolau Castle forms part of the many military defence turrets scattered around the Minorcan coast. The surrounding courtyard will host the FICME 2020 opening gala.

Illa del Rei

Closing Gala venue for the fourth edition of the Festival. This small island, located inside the port of Mahon, offers an unmatched perspective on the mouth of the port and the easternmost coast.

MAP

Plaça de la Catedral de Ciutadella

Heart of the old city and a must-see to discover the most characteristic architectural element of the west of the island.

Cavalleria lighthouse

A space that adds human constructions with spectacular scenic views.

Indoor Venues

Cinemes Canal Salat

Who we are

MENORCA INTERNATIONAL FILM Festival, 
MUCH MORE THAN CINEMA

Silence, we are screening.

Had we been told in 2016 that a short film festival would become one of the island references in the summer , we would have been hard-pressed to believe. Menorca International Film Festival – Social &  Sustainable may seem small in format, but large in goal . Remove the viewers’ consciousness , with risky proposals , which speak transparently about social, environmental, human conflicts . We open windows to topics that should make us aware of the world we live in and how we interact with it.

In addition to entertaining, cinema is a means of understanding the reality that surrounds us .

For this, we make the International Film Festival of Menorca – Social & Sustainable a space that goes beyond the screening of committed films and shorts. It is also a meeting place for young creators , a hub for professionals who want to improve the practices of the sector such as industry, set and filming . For those companies, associations and entities that, through culture, want to put their bit of sand to make a better Menorca .
