Who we are
MENORCA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL,
MUCH MORE THAN CINEMA
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.
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:
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.
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.
