FESTIVAL INTERNACIONAL DE CINE DE AUTOR

15 - 21 November 2019

 

THE FIC AUTOR

The FIC AUTOR (Author's International Film Festival) is interested in unique and artistic films that exceed the limits of traditional storytelling. We look for Feature and Short Films that reflect the director's personal creative vision, and a style that is distinct enough to shine through the collective process.


We don't care if your films have recognized stars or unknown names; we are against the politics and bureaucracy that floods the film industry. We want to be recognized as an objective festival. We don't want to build our reputation based on how many superstars are in attendance; what we want is the truly best world cinema in our theaters!

The 3rd edition of the FIC AUTOR will take place from November 15 to 21, 2019 in Guadalajara, Jalisco, México. We will present the very best films from around the world! FIC AUTOR will strive to be one of the most important cultural events in the city. We aspire to become an international spotlight for new directors!

The official selection will be screened at the CINEFORO, and the 14 WINNERS will be honored with their prize at the end of their screening. The Cineforo is the most prestigious cinema theater in the city and is one of the biggest with 440 seats.

In addition to the screenings, every year we make a trip to Tequila, about an hour outside of Guadalajara, where the filmmakers enjoy a few of the town's tequila distillery tours, which includes more than a few tastings...
