MISSION & OBJECTIVE
During the five-day festival, area residents, visitors, members of the business and film communities, public officials, students and academics come together to celebrate the art of film, tequila, music and surf. Sayulita is a melting pot of people from all over the world that have settled in this tiny village on the Riviera Nayarit, and our festival aims to reflect that blend of culture and sharing that has made Sayulita such a wonderful place.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL
Festival Sayulita 2015 is calling you to our paradise! The second annual Festival Sayulita is a unique gathering for all lovers of Mexico, Film, Spirits, Food, Music and Surf to be held January 14-18th. The idyllic coastal town of Sayulita provides a scenic, bohemian background perfect for this international festival. Creative and provocative films will be shown in various venues throughout the town. Additional events include tequila and food pairings, master tastings, beach-front film venues, private screenings, surf competition, and live music.

Once known only for its fishing business and scenic beaches, Sayulita now boasts a thriving community of local, Mexican restaurants and craftsman alongside trendsetting establishments. Surfing, paddle boarding, yoga, mountain biking and other outdoor activities helps make Sayulita an irresistible destination. Festival Sayulita will highlight these many assets while spicing up the town with new and never-been-seen international films in the genres of Action Sports, Short Feature, Documentary, Animation and Stop Motion, and Alternative.

Spirit vendors will be offering tastings of locally made, specialty spirits and sharing some of their knowledge on the growing and processing methods and local restaurants are planning pairing menus to enhance tequila experience. Don't miss the start of something authentic, magical and far-out as only Sayulita can offer..
