- Sun block and a hat for during the day … San Miguel Allende and Guanajuato City are known for having a temperate climate. Nevertheless, we recommend you take precautions and have sun block, a hat and sunglasses handy. During the week of the Festival we expect the temperature to be between 68° and 82° Fahrenheit during the day.
- … and a jacket and umbrella for the nighttime. As opposed to the daytime, we expect colder temperatures at night and there’s a very good chance of rain. If you’re joining us on any of our night time screenings such as Movies with Mummy or Midnight Madness, don’t forget a rain jacket and some rain boots.
- Comfortable walking shoes. Whether you’re coming to San Miguel or Guanajuato, we recommend you bring comfortable shoes, be they tennis shoes, boots or any kind of shoe that doesn’t have a high heel. All of our locations are located near downtown and they’re all a 2 to 5 minute walking distance from each other.
- Your choice of bag. Our shows run from 10:00 am to about 3:00 in the morning. Carrying a bag can be very helpful if you’re planning to attend activities all day. Remember to always carry a bottle of water, some snacks to eat between screenings, a charger or a battery and one of the already mentioned items.
- Attitude. The Guanajuato International Film Festival is a unique experience, being completely free of charge, filled with concerts, book presentations and master classes.
