THE GUANAJUATO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL aims to provide a space for the exhibition of quality cinema, rewarding it with materials and equipment to support artists in the creation of more cinema. At the same time, it tries to bring together those who make films and those who wish to join this group of creators to bring about the meeting and the union of forces.

The Festival is possible thanks to

Residences GIFF

GIFF is committed to the development and training of Mexican filmmakers and as part of the international alliances it maintains with top-level film institutions.

Thanks to the alliance between the Guanajuato International Film Festival, the Medienboard Berlin Brandenburg and the Goethe-Institut Mexico, GIFF presents the filmmakers who will be part of the Guanajuato-Berlin 24/7 Artistic Residency.

  • Two Mexican producers at the Rotterdam Lab
  • Residence Guanajuato-Berlin 24/7

The GIFF team has helped me do research, to get to know the town better and Mexico which is the ideal place to write my series.

Me emociona mucho la oportunidad que me está dando el GIFF de participar en el Rotterdam Lab de llevar mi proyecto SOMOS PEQUEÑAS a productores de todo el mundo. Es un largometraje que mezcla ficción y documental.

El año pasado fui una de las afortunadas becadas para asistir al Rotterdam Lab el cual fue una de las experiencias más formativas en este proceso de convertirme en productora y sobre todo profesionalizarme.
