Cine Falaz welcomes with love all productions that struggle to be recognized in their rebellion against the norm. We blur the boundaries between the real and the fictional, let's be creative, let's break the rules!

Cinema is an art that thrives on the diversity and originality of its creators. At Cine Falaz, we value all those productions that dare to be different and question the established structures. Our goal is to provide a platform for filmmakers who seek to break convention and experiment with new ways of storytelling.

We invite amateur/professional filmmakers, students, communicators, visual artists, and film lovers who have an audiovisual project and are interested in promoting and disseminating their work in different cities around the world, to participate in "Cine Falaz - International Mockumentary Festival" in its 2024 edition.

Our main objective is to host those productions that do not find their place, as they are neither fiction nor documentary. To generate a space where they are seen, promoted, reflected, and talked about.
