Fusagasuga 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, prizes will be the work of a regional artist.

The main award of the contest will be an "Orquidea de los Andes" (Orchid of the Andes) for best feature film.

In addition to this award, "Orchid of the Andes" will go to: “Women fighters” and “The Voice that Breaks the Silence”

Our intention from the FICFUSA is to recognize the work of filmmakers through their films contributing to build the equitable society we dream.

WOMEN FIGHTER. “Orquídea de los Andes” 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.

VOICE BREAKING THE SILENCE. This “Orquídea de los Andes” 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. This award will acknowledge the production team that, through their film, promotes to multiply the voices that break the silence.
