Festival start: 12 November 2024      Festival end: 15 November 2024

Bogota’s Central University’s Film School invites all students, graduates, filmmakers, and alike to participate in its seventh edition of the Central University’s International Film Festival (Festival Internacional de Cine de la Universidad Central): FICUC. A space that provides the opportunity to build new connections based on cinematographic celebration. A national and international gathering.

Since the goal of the festival is to make an encounter of diverse voices in which the transformation and filmmaking development require the integration of new perspectives, we have decided that the heart of the matter of this year is “Intervening history” By this means we will delve into the wanders, life experiences and point of views of the new emerging generations of filmmakers.

As part of the festival, we believe that cinema has been built by power and the elite in most cases. The winners have written history and that’s why we decided to create the subject of this year.

Through cinema, we intervene in history to give voice to those who haven’t had one. We re-write it so cinema won't be for a few, instead we want everyone to be able to tell their stories and our stories so that cinema embraces us all equally.

NOTE: The short films will be of free theme. Nonetheless, if the short films involve in one way or another the theme “intervening history” they’ll have more chances of being selected.

In each category, the prize will be awarded to the best work and if the jury considers it, a special mention will be awarded by the jury. Awards and recognitions will be announced at the festival's closing ceremony.
