The International Animal and Environmental Film Festival of Mexico City welcomes you for its 5th. Edition where we accept films from the 5 continents like every year.

Our task at the Festival is to promote values, causes and activist struggle through Art where we open different windows of opportunity to show the work of great Filmmakers in it. During the year we have different cultural events, Mobile Cinema, Government Spaces that open the doors for this Dissemination, as well as a Streaming platform that averages a month of time to be seen in greater opportunity, closing with our Honorary Closing.

The 3 themes for this year are:

-Children's rights

Will be accepted:

-Short films
-Feature films
-Music video clips

Because it is a Festival with reasons of Animal and Environmental awareness and this year the cause of "Children's Rights", all projects will receive a participation laurel if they are not in the final sample, likewise the official selection will have its laurel of participation. Official selection and a diploma sent to your email, then the Winners will win the FICAA 2024 statuette with their recognition sent to the registered email.

The final Award is in the Month of December where guests from different Countries and States of the Country arrive to collect their statuette.

The first place in the category will receive the Official Statuette, there will be second and third place who will receive a diploma confirming the certificate.


1. The delivery of Statuettes takes place only on the day of the award ceremony since they are ordered with planning and come personalized with the name of the Director and the name of the Film. At FICAA everything is personalized.

2. If you are outside the country it will only be digital and placed within our networks and official website. In some cases discussed, the statuette can be sent but the Winner will cover the shipping costs.

The International Animal and Environmental Film Festival invites producers and filmmakers from Mexico and other regions of the world to submit their films. It will be carried out in a period from January 15, 2024 to September 25, 2024.

The categories will all be valued in National and International.

This year we count "Children's Rights" as a “Guest Cause” so films with this theme will also be accepted within the 2024 Festival.

The jury will decide awards or special mentions in special situations.

Feature film (30 minutes and up)

Animated short (1 minute - 29 minutes)

Animated feature length (30 minutes and up)

Student Short (1 minute - 29 minutes) (Send proof of student who is a member of the crew)

We do not have any defined genre within the themes, so the talent and vision of each filmmaker is permissible, placing any genre such as fiction, comedy, animation, horror, etc.

The films will be used in 2 ways:

1. Monthly In-Person Show: Dissemination work will be carried out in different Mayor's Offices of Mexico City within the Animal protection events that we carry out, showing a part of the films for the public, promoting knowledge and distribution of their materials.

2. online exhibition: The films will be exhibited on the Platform for a maximum of one month so that they can be competing in other Festivals without problems.

The categories will be divided into national and international and there will be different laurels depending on the case to be used, these being:

Laurel Winner Public: Winner according to votes and public taste

Laurel Sample: Awarded to films that were selected to be presented during these months
