Kickstarter is once again teaming up with the Guanajuato International Film Festival to support emerging Mexican filmmakers through workshops, training, and Kickstarter campaigns.
For the third year in a row, Kickstarter is teaming up with the Guanajuato International Film Festival (GIFF) to support emerging Mexican filmmakers. Twelve teams of students from all across Mexico, selected by GIFF, have launched Kickstarter projects to fund the production of short narrative and documentary films which will premiere at the festival in July.
GIFF is the only film festival in Mexico to offer an educational program for students. Each year, students from universities across the country are chosen to take part in workshops and training to help bring their film projects to life.
The program is divided into two initiatives: Rally Universitario (University Rally), which challenges students to produce a narrative short in just 48 hours, and Identidad y Pertenencia (Identity and Belonging), which features six short documentaries that explore the regional identity and contemporary challenges of life in Guanajuato, Mexico.
