Fusagasugá International Film Festival (FICFUSA) aims to bring the residents of Fusagasugá and the Sumapaz region new screens, points of view and cinematographic work of high quality to promote a critical thinking around the problems and issues experienced by women. In the short term, we aim to become an international platform for gender and women thematic films, attracting producers, directors, and distributors interested in these subjects.

The orchid, national flower of Colombia, represents the progress of Sumapaz (where FICFUSA takes place) because the region is linked to the cultivation of their species. It is a symbol of the colorful natural beauty of the area. Based on this concept, the awards will be the work of a plastic artist from the region.
The main award of the contest will be the “Orchid of the Andes” for the Best Film of FICFUSA 2024 and two special mentions for: “Woman who fight” and “The voice that breaks the silence.”

WOMAN WHO FIGHT, to the film in the international feature film competition, which highlights the work of those who fight for the defense of fundamental women rights worldwide.

THE VOICE THAT BREAKS THE SILENCE will go to the film, which highlights the facts, characters or groups of women within a reality we ignored, or from an original point of view, or a reality sidelined by the mass media.
