FESTIVAL

The Menorca International Film Festival (FICME) is the the seventh art annual event on the island, with a social and sustainable spirit which permeates its programming and organization from the contest, aware of the positive effect it has to promote its culture and art as well as a social and ecological awareness in Menorca. For this reason we have set out to meet the maximum Sustainable Development Goals. A United Nations initiative called Agenda 2030 to improve our world in cross-cutting issues.

Jury & Awards

Each year, recognized professionals in the audiovisual sector join the team to make up a jury that chooses the winners of the Illes en Curt and Balears en Curt sections. The Talent Jove section decides winners through public vote. The winning short films in each section receive an economic prize and an award that represents some element related to the FICME made by local and emerging artists.

Joan Bover

He is a filmmaker from Mallorca who founded the production company Far Visuals. With Kyoko, screened at FICME 2018, he was nominated for a Goya and won a Silver Biznaga in Malaga. But it is not the only time we have seen him at FICME; in 2020 he presented Ulisses.

Marta Nieto

She has worked as an actress for directors such as Antonio Banderas and Rodrigo Sorogoyen, she has been awarded at the Venice Film Festival and we have seen her at film festivals with Madre (FICME 2017) and Litus (FICME 2019). 

Miki Esparbé

We have seen him in films such as El rei borniLes distàncies or soon in Malnazidos, and he visited us to present Extraños en la carretera (FICME 2018). Almost every year we have enjoyed his performances, in What Is Love (FICME 2019) and A quien dices amar (FICME 2020).

AWARD DESIGNER

Bobby Q has been a graphic designer and illustrator for over 25 years. Menorca Ilustrada was born in full lockdown as a way of escape, as a need to do something creative and, above all, to travel by means of the imagination through our beautiful island of Menorca. "With my illustrations I try to reflect landscapes, locations and everyday scenes that connect with the collective imagination of the people from Menorca and other fans of the island."

Venues & useful info

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. Being present all over the island allows Menorcans and visitors to get to know unique and emblematic spaces, always valuing their outdoor locations that Menorca offers. Do you want to know them a little more?

FICME 2021 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 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.

Who we are

MENORCA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL,
MUCH MORE THAN CINEMA

Silence, we are screening.

The Menorca International Film Festival was founded in 2016 with two objectives: to be a cultural and cinematographic event of reference in Menorca and the Balearic Islands and stir the consciences of the spectators, with risky proposals, that speak transparently of social, environmental and 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.

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT AND CINEMA GOALS,
A GOOD BINOMIAL

From 2019 the commitment of the International Film Festival of Menorca has taken it a step further. And it has adhered to the  Sustainable Development Goals pledged by the United Nations. So that the little we can do, adds up to all the actions that take place all over the world. And the union will, in the end, force us to improve our planet. These are the SDGs we have complied with since the Festival:

FICME 365

CINEMA AND EDUCATION

One of the Sustainable Development Goals proclaimed by the United Nations is the duty to provide quality Education. This ODS is present at the Menorca International Film Festival throughout the year. But in a very special way in the training workshops that take place during the actions of FICME 365.

CINEMAR

One of the flags of Menorca is the declaration of Biosphere Reserve, which it received in 1993. In line with the declaration of the Menorca International Film Festival of being a sustainable event and aware of environmental problems, the Biosphere Reserve cycle began , just the year in which the declaration was 25 years old, in 2019. During 2021, the cycle is dedicated to the sea and is called CineMar.
