In recent decades, and at one time to the emergence of new technologies that have ended up scanning most of the processes of the film, the documentary has known a notorious and systematic growth around the world. In our country, and for more than one decade, a production before linked almost exclusively to fiction has been swelling their ranks with new topics, new approaches, new geographies, new dilemmas.

It is in this context that FIDBA is proposed as the 1st. International Film Festival dedicated to this genre which films with the same fans - as long as we believe that the forms and the doings of the documentary film are different from those of the fiction - may meet and dialogue among them and with the public. If the documentary is a meeting point for the FIDBA, it is [...]

Festival Internacional de Cine de Monterrey

Call for entries

HIGHLIGHTED

International Festival

Short film festival

Feature film festival

Since its foundation, the Festival has sought the promotion of film culture based on three principles:

1) That the exposure to film culture contributes to the awareness of communities and nations of the need to support their own cinematographic expressions, which are cultural and social ambassadors to the rest of the world.

2) That a showcase of new world cinema is a mirror on to which our local and national filmmaking can measure and compare itself, establishing references of form and content that fosters the reflection and the search for international competitiveness.

3) That films made in Monterrey, Mexico and throughout the world need to be exhibited. A film that is not shown does not exist. Thus it becomes primordial to provide a space for film exhibition.
