The International Festival of Short Films on the Elderly (FICMA) was born within the Federation of Associations of the Elderly of Salamanca (FAMASA) with the aim of providing a cultural offer that contributes to improving the quality of life of the elderly by bringing them closer to a full citizenship and offering the cultural heritage of which they are protagonists. It is celebrated every year between September and October since 2016 in the city of Salamanca, being a meeting of intergenerational culture

The Festival poses as a place of debate and discourse for questions such as: How has cinema treated old age? How does it reflect the role of the elderly in the family, sentimental, emotional and social relationships, the process of deterioration and the proximity of death, in a society where the average age of the population is increasingly high? Does the influence of cinema negatively or positively affect the stereotypes and beliefs that society generates about the elderly and the elderly? Do you treat men in the same way as women?

The old age is heterogeneous, as much as older adults exist in the world and this is what aims to demonstrate this cinematographic event.

OBJECTIVES

The goal of FICMA is to get Salamanca people to come to the cinema from the perspective of people over 65 and / or with dependence. Thus, it is an excellent opportunity to offer a festival of cinema to the city and an active and positive vision of this sector of the population. The goal of the festival is for society to take a vision that highlights the positive aspects of old age and reinforces intergenerational relations.
