48-Hour Collegiate Rally Screenings

The Guanajuato International Film Festival stands out for its constant innovation and commitment to put cinema within reach of everyone, free of charge, as well as creating programs that launch new talent. No further proof is needed than the 48-Hour Collegiate Rally that reached its finish line yesterday at the end of its ninth edition, crowding the Alhóndiga de Granaditas between the cheers from the audience and the teams, confirming that this is the festival’s flagship.

After Borchi y su Double Redoble and Candy played their concerts, both bands in charge of the musicalization for the shorts, there was a Red Carpet that the members of all six participating teams walked: Las Candelarias, from Centro Universitario de la Costa in Puerto Vallarta; Guía Básica para una Muerte Perfecta, from Liceo Querétaro; Lucas el Grande, from Universidad Autónoma de Coahuila; Otro Muerto, from UNAM; Los Retratos de Simone, from Universidad Autónoma de Nayarit and Vanessa, from Universidad Lamar in Guadalajara. Each team was proud to show their film, which was the result of a challenge that began months ago with training workshops and ended in Guanajuato City by shooting and editing a short film in 48 hours.
