Fundación Ixcanul works under the principle that film, aside from being a space for fun and relaxation, is a powerful force which transforms people’s lives and society itself. Films allow us to shatter stereotypes, build new narratives, imagine a future with greater justice, arouse people’s sensitivity, find consensual positions, promote empathy, etc.


The objective pursued by Fundación Ixcanul is to help create positive social impact and defend human rights through film, artistic and technical training, and strengthening the local film industry.   


Our pillars of action are:

  1. Itinerant Cinema
  2. Volcano Documentaries
  3. Scholarships
  4. Film Fund
  5. La Sala de Cine (presenting art and experimental film)
  6. Acting Academy and Technical Training
