GuadaLAjara Film festival launches its 10th Edition on December 17-19, 2020 in Los Angeles. After 10 years of bringing cinema to Los Angeles under FICG, in order to diversify and embrace the Los Angeles cinephiles by bringing them stories rich in cultural diversities, GuadaLAjara will showcase films from across the spectrum of experiences from the border to the major cities.
Festival Internacional de Cine en Guadalajara is the premiere film festival in Mexico and brings a curated selection to Los Angeles to be a bridge for Latinx filmmakers on both sides of the border. GuadaLAjara Film Festival is extending its commitment to thru programming, WIP Latino (WORK IN PROGRESS program) a filmmaking lab that supports emerging talent, and Masterclasses which open up important themes for discussion from well-established filmmakers from the USA & Mexico.
The festival is a platform to spotlight cinema, where cultures converge and our heritage is preserved through stories to be shared with audiences within the United States.
