MISSION & OBJECTIVE

The primary objective of the GUANAJUATO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL is to provide more opportunities for the exhibition and appreciation of films, rewarding their quality so as to allow the artists to continue producing. At the same time, we intend to bring together newcomers alongside the industry’s most seasoned professionals, to join forces in a very open, accessible and competitive environment.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

Since 1998 the Guanajuato International Film Festival (GIFF) has been held during the final week of July in the cities of San Miguel de Allende and Guanajuato Capital, Mexico.

We are a festival that prides itself in celebrating, supporting and awarding the next generation of filmmakers. Acting as a platform for launching new careers, GIFF’s national and international competition pits newcomers alongside the industry’s most seasoned veterans, in an atmosphere full of camaraderie and respect, where new and aspiring filmmakers mix with industry professionals in a very open, accessible and competitive environment.

Over the past two decades, GIFF established itself as the most important platform for young filmmakers in Latin America, each year bringing upcoming talents together with world-renowned experts of the moving image. In 2018 GIFF received over 3,500 films from 117 countries for competition,

Over the course of 10 days, more than 400 films were screened from 10am until 4am in 21 venues, which included such unusual locations as: the Jardín Principal (main square) of San Miguel de Allende; the classical open-air staircase of the University of Guanajuato; the subterranean streets and tunnels beneath Guanajuato Capital (where gay, lesbian, erotic and underground films are projected); the impressive Teatro Juarez- one of the countries most beautiful colonial theaters, as well as horror films that are screened in the municipal graveyard (panteón). There are also screenings in more conventional spaces such as the Teatro Angela Peralta (SMA), Centro Cultural Ignacio Ramirez – El Nigromante (SMA), and Teatro Cervantes (GTO).

The international competition is the largest in Mexico, with films competing in a variety of categories that include: Short Fiction, Animation and Experimental, Short and Long Documentaries, and Feature Film Ficition.

We also host an assortment of workshops, conferences, Women in Film and Television luncheons and National Tributes to both Mexican and International A-list filmmakers who are in attendance.

GIFF has paid tribute to both National and International filmmakers, including:Danny Boyle, Darren Aronofsky, Julie Taymor, Park Chan-wook, Paul Schrader, Bong Joon-ho, Fatih Akin, Peter Greenaway, Spike Lee, Tim Burton, Kenneth Anger, Oliver Stone, Lucrecia Martel, Eliseo Subiela, Anton Corbijn, Deepa Mehta, Shyam Benegal, Tongolele, Joaquin Cordero, Irvin Kershner, Gaspar Noé, Naomi Kawase, Spike Jonze, Felipe Cazals, Josefina Echanove, Patricia Reyes Spíndola, Diana Bracho, María Rojo, Beatriz Novaro, among many others.

In association with Women In Film and Television International, GIFF celebrates cinema’s most accomplished women. Past honorees have included: Graciela Borges, Bertha Navarro, Adriana Barraza, Marcela Fernández Violante, Brigitte Broch, Kathy Jurado, Angélica Aragón, Gloria Schoemann, Carmen Arristegui, Silvia Pinal, Ana Ofelia Murguía, Ofelia Medina, Carla Estrada, Carmen Aristegui and Maria Elena Velasco, to name a few.

The festival´s industry section summons international producers, distributors and diverse film financing institutions from around the world interested in participating in co-productions with the top Mexican filmmakers and in its latest editions hosted several hacks, a series lab and a VR Camp.

During the 61st edition of the Cannes Film Festival (2008), GIFF announced a partnership with the Cinéfondation Résidence, created by the Cannes Film Festival, to launch a program called the MexiCannes Summer Residence Program. Serving as an extension to the Cinéfondation Residence, which yearly selects a dozen of the very best young filmmakers in the world (in addition to 2 of the top Mexican filmmakers on special scholarship from GIFF) and offers them a platform designed to propel their careers. The program includes private master’s classes, workshops and meetings with producers, distributors and film financiers during the International Pitching Market, helping them secure financing for their film projects. Since the second session of the yearly Résidence runs until mid-July, just before GIFF begins, this is the first opportunity for many producers to learn about these projects and meet the filmmakers themselves.

Yearly the festival contends with the participation of a guest country of honor, which presents the best of its country’s film, music and culture. By way of special delegates who offer conferences, workshops, retrospectives, as well as present their country’s industry; this cultural exchange reinforces the relationships between the creators of both nations while promoting artistic co-production. In previous years Canada, Spain, Germany, Brazil, France, the U.S.A., India, the United Kingdom, Argentina, South Korea, the Netherlands, Colombia, Poland, Turkey, Japan, Canada and Lebanon have all been Spotlight Countries. For the upcoming 22nd edition in July of 2019, the festival will host the Philippines as our most honored guest.

Some of the world-recognized film institutions that have participated in the past include: Cannes Film Festival, Busan International Film Festival, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Festival International du Court Métrage à Clermont-Ferrand, INCAA, Museo del Cine (Argentina), BAFICI, KOFIC, UK Film Council, EYE International, K ARTS, Asiana Short Film Festival, East End Film Festival, Royal College of Art, Encounters, British Film Institute, Scottish Screen, Warp X, Aardman Animation, The Channel 4 British Documentary Foundation, Proimagenes Colombia, Polish Film Institute, Ankara Cinema Association, Edinburgh International Film Festival, International Short Film Festival Oberhausen, Krakow Film Foundation, Interfilm Berlin, Festival de Cine de Huesca, Tokyo International Film Festival, Annecy International Animated Film Festival, Canal+, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, American Film Institute, Museum of Modern Art, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, Texas Archive of the Moving Image, Frameline, Outfest, South by Southwest, Palm Springs International Film Festival, Chicago International Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, Telefilm Canada, Sundance Institute, the Vancouver Film School, and the University of Southern California and the University of Texas at Austin film departments.

As a non-profit cultural event that does not charge admission to its viewing audiences. GIFF is made possible each year through the generous participation of institutions and partners, who each lend their support to our festival; whose main objective is the strengthening of cinema through the mutual exchange of knowledge, experience and ideas.
