MISSION & OBJECTIVE

Literal Magazine is proud to celebrate its 6th edition of Literally Short Film Festival. Literally Short is an event initiated by our drive to bridge all cultures onto one collaborative stage that stimulates international artistic expression. Our mission is to promote innovative approaches to social change through the arts and cultural influences. Our passion for film lies in its exquisite capacity to merge a multitude of arts into one vision; thus, Literally Short Film Festival seeks to dissolve all geographical boundaries into one platform that equally voices all cultures.

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

Literally Short Film Festival stems out of Literal Magazine, an award-winning, bilingual publication in Mexico and the US focusing on literature, art, and current events. Literal recognizes its potential strength as a point of departure for understanding that the broad cultural universe is not overshadowed by any single language, but is bathed in the light of a unified spirit.
