A Cinematographic Journey from Voladero to the Global Stage


In the nooks of history and the streets of Monterrey, a fascinating narrative has been woven that transcends time and space, a story that began with the modest Voladero International Film and Video Festival and has transformed into what we know today as the ficmonterrey. This journey, from its beginnings to the founding of the Monterrey International Film Festival (NPO) in 2005, is an odyssey of passion, creativity and commitment to the art of cinema.

A Mosaic of Genres in August

Every August, the ficmonterrey becomes a melting pot of film genres, offering a visual spectacle that ranges from moving works of fiction and revealing documentaries to innovative animations. This diverse array of films not only enriches our city’s cultural landscape but also serves as a reminder of the unifying power of cinema.

Cultivating Talent and the Film Community

The ficmonterrey’s commitment to the training and development of new talent is palpable through initiatives such as KinoStart LAB, the International Meeting of Women in Cinema, and FILMO: Forum for the Future of Mexican Cinema. These programs are the heart of the festival, pumping vitality and new ideas into the film industry, both locally and internationally.

The ficmonterrey embraces cinema as a transformative art, a force capable of instigating social change, fostering understanding and promoting peace.
