Great Message International Film Festival -
We really wish to share international thinking which is developed in the form of films with the society and the young generation of humanity. Every human being is a message in himself or herself, we just have to channelize & nurture that message into a great one. Filmmakers from all across the globe are respectfully welcome to share and submit your great films into the GMIFF.

We understand that you understand the realm of understanding and so you have created your wonderful films with your conscious understanding.

Showcasing Greatness through Audio-Visual
Through vantage point we see that entertainment is just the medium to share realm of life with film lovers. If we penetrate the meaning of life sometime we feel that there is no such meaning or purpose to life, yes! Sometime, but we must have to give a great meaning or purpose to life to create great message for whole humanity or for our next generation.

We are really very small people; please understand what we want to say. But the task or mission which we want to empower is very big. One can understand it by the example of river. The beginning or origin of every river is so small but her consistency with selflessness leads her towards more hugeness.

Most Welcome!
Dear human beings, being human it is good if we transform each moment into humane one.

We really admire your passion and enthusiasm as a filmmaker so with humbleness we invite filmmakers from all across the globe to share your great films into Great Message International Film Festival - GMIFF.

The Latin American Film Festival of Bordeaux, France, was born in 1983, aiming at promoting quality films not or little broadcasted in France.

It started at a time when Latin American Cinema was completely missing in French movie theaters. For some years now, we are glad to witness that Latin American Film production has greatly grown and entered distribution channels in Europe. However, our mission does not end, as Latin American films are still not present enough and the richness they offer makes us believe, every year, that our Festival has still a great mission to accomplish.

The Latin American Film Festival of Bordeaux, since it was created, has gathered more than 65.000 people, of all ages, rushing to meet our more than 2.500 professionals invited throughout our history (directors, producers, technicians, lecturers...), to attend to more than 100 concerts, art exhibitions, workshops... and to participate to more than 300 meetings and conferences, and unforgettable moments.

HISTORIQUE DU FIC :

Le FESTIVAL INTERNATIONAL DU COURT-MÉTRAGE FIC a été conçu en 2009 par l´Alliance Française de Bella Vista.

Il a connu un très grand succès reflété dans ses six salles de projection, ainsi que dans les salons du Gala de la Remise des prix marquant la fermeture de la première présentation d´un festival international né pour s´ouvrir comme une fenêtre sur le monde.

Ce festival a évolué sans cesse et à pas de géant, renforçant dans chaque édition son caractère national et international, au point d’atteindre le chiffre de 1237 films venus de 80 pays différents, lors de sa 8ème édition en 2017, caractérisée par l’originalité et la qualité des 40 projections de toute la sélection officielle offerte dans 18 salles.

Il faudrait également considérer les activités parallèles : conférences, débats, une exposition offerte par des artistes de la région pour rendre hommage au cinéma universel, créant une atmosphère toute particulière. Le dîner de Gala de remise des prix, qui a encore eu lieu dans le grand salon de la Chambre de Commerce et d´Industrie de San Miguel, s´est tenu dans le cadre d´une excellente présentation réalisée à travers l´Université Ouverte Interaméricaine et TELEFE, pour accueillir des cinéastes argentins et étrangers et des autorités et personnalités représentatives. La UAI et le REDAU – Réseau d´Universités Ibéro-américaines pour le développement de l’audiovisuel dans la région de l’UNASUR, ont accordé un prix spécial à la narration innovante.
