Los Cabos is an icon of Mexico’s beautiful landscapes and adventurous nature, but it also has become a showcase of its culture.
A big part of this is the International Film Festival of Los Cabos, contributing to the development of cinematographic culture around the world, but focusing primarily on Mexico, Canada, and the United States. Fomenting and helping to promote young aspiring filmmakers as well as bringing internationally famed actors and directors through its first 10 years of history.
This year, however, the Festival will be held in a new format. A hybrid format will allow the event to more than ever unite and showcase Mexico’s culture. With screenings taking place in three different theaters across the country, the movie theater inside the mall Puerto Paraiso in Los Cabos, the one Located inside the mall Reforma 222 in Mexico City, and the one located inside the mall Galerías Merida, in Merida, Yucatán.
This year’s edition of the festival will see a couple of special events. The first, called “La Baja Inspira”, will be a showing of a selection of films inspired directly by the region of Baja California Sur. These films will be judged and a winner will be selected and awarded a price of 30 thousand pesos.
The second special event will be “Historias Sin Tiempo” a virtual gallery in honor of the artist “El Nacho”, who died last year and was the author of the main prize given at the festival. The official page of the event will host this virtual gallery that seeks to share El Nacho’s work, exploring the visual language he created through his work.
