Since 2012, the International Festival of Cinema and Collective Memory (FICMEC), organized by the Center of Collective Memory for Democracy and Peace (CMCDP), has become an annual event for the citizens of Nador, Morocco, and the surrounding regions, enabling them to to rub shoulders with a plethora of world-renowned actors and to enjoy feature films and documentaries from filmmakers from all over the world, treating themes of human rights, democrary, and individual as well as collective memory. It also aims to create a cultural dynamic in this part of Morocco, helping to contribute to its cultural development.

The FICMEC joins public screenings and film debates with reflections on current and universal issues through conferences and round tables, animated by film specialists, academic researchers, politicians and media professionals.

Nador is a coastal city in the northeastern Rif region of Morocco. Its strategic position south of Melilla, an autonomous Spanish city in North Africa, has made it a crossroads for refugees and people leaving countries with poor economies attempting to cross the Mediterranean to enter the European Union.
