October is coming upon us quickly and it’s this time every year that we look forward to enjoying the International Film Festival in Morelia!
The Michoacan capital is one of the most cultural cities in all of Mexico. From its flavorful gastronomic offer, art exhibits, theater plays, film festivals, dance and music festivals, there’s always a cultural event to dive into in Morelia.
This year, from October 20 to 28, the city will dress up to receive Mexican and foreign films at the 16th annual Morelia Film Festival. It’s the only festival of its kind in Mexico whose official selection in competition is exclusively national. Of course, the programming is complemented with a selection of Mexican and international premieres, workshops, conferences, retrospectives of various directors as well as special events.
The Morelia Film Festival’s mission is to promote new Mexican talent, increase the film offer of the country, and contribute to the promotion of cultural activities in Michoacán. What better way to achieve this than by hosting the festival in the brand-new city. Morelia is a true jewel of colonial architecture, and for that reason it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
The venues and booths at the Morelia Film Festival form a perimeter of the historic center which makes it easy to move from one place to another on foot, enjoying the characteristic atmosphere of the heart of the city.
