What will be the Fic Monterrey tributes of the year?

Monterrey International Film Festival will celebrate the institutional work of CONARTE, and the composer and filmmaker Michael Nyman’s one. 

In the sixteenth edition, to celebrate from August 13 to 20, the festival recognizes the career of the Nuevo León Council for Culture and the Arts, institution that has transformed the environment and made a great work promoting the arts in the state, especially in the area of film and audiovisual.

The audience could watch the Cabrito de Plata award ceremony through social media on August 14 at 19:45. In the end, there will be the screening of the film “Women of Warm Hands” by Adrián Macias, with whom we will have a conversation to finish.

This 2020, the Fic Monterrey also recognizes the inspiring career of composer and filmmaker Michael Nyman, with the International Career Achievement Tribute for his contribution to the art of movement and sound.

The honoree will receive the Cabrito de Plata next Thursday, August 13, during the opening of the Festival, which will be broadcast through our Facebook page and on the YouTube channel. Nyman will talk with the director and producer Paula Astorga next Sunday, August 16 through the social media of the event, and in the end, the public will be able to enjoy the premiere of the film Nyman’s Earthquake, in Cinépolis Klic, from 21:00 and for 24 hours.
