Identity and Belonging Collegiate Documentary Contest

Identity and Belonging Collegiate Documentary Contest


What a better way to start the second stage of the GIFF, now in Guanajuato, than the screening of the documentaries of our youth Identity and Belonging, program, that for the eighth consecutive year, promotes a sense of identity with and connection to Guanajuato —a region filled with tradition— among the younger generation.

A call for entries was launched on September 30, 2016. Each project was evaluated and six finalists were selected. Their goal is to produce a professional 10-minute documentary, which will premiere today at 11:00 hrs, in the Auditorium of the University of Guanajuato, as part of the Inauguration of the 20th edition of GIFF, now in Guanajuato, after five days in San Miguel de Allende.

The documentaries illustrates the interests, concerns and expectations of the contestants with respect to their surroundings, their family life and their day-to-day lives, which are ultimately stories of their own. Each team received $30,000 pesos to finance their projects and embarked on a series of workshops with experts in different aspects of filmmaking including: theme, story, narrative structure, crowdfunding, production, cinematography, sound production, editing and post-production.

The six participating teams are:
