Since his inception, the FIMU has been organised with the support of students from UTBM (University of Technology of Belfort-Montbéliard) and other universities in the metropolitan area.
Students are at the project's core and come out in droves year after year to bring the festival to life. They are engaged on every front: recruitment of volunteers, setup of booths in the schools, behind-the-scenes organisation... They also play a part in developing the website and creating the poster.
Indeed, the FIMU would not be what it is today without student participation!
