24th Edition of Puerto Vallarta Film Festival Set for June 14-17

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – The 24th annual Puerto Vallarta International Film Festival (FICPV) is set to light up Banderas Bay from June 14th to 17th, 2024. Hosted by the University of Guadalajara’s Centro Universitario de la Costa (CUCosta), the FICPV promises a vibrant celebration of cinema for all.

This highly-anticipated event serves as the premier film showcase for Puerto Vallarta and the surrounding region. As an extension of the acclaimed Guadalajara International Film Festival, the FICPV brings a carefully curated selection of premiere short films and feature-length movies to various venues across the city.

Beyond the red carpets and premieres, FICPV fosters artistic exchange and education. Rector Jorge Téllez emphasizes the festival’s inclusivity, stating it provides “a forum for training, instruction, and creative exchange” not only for film professionals and students, but also for international critics and the broader community.

Attendees can look forward to a diverse program, including free screenings of short films, documentaries, and feature film premieres. Workshops and academic activities delve deeper into the world of cinema, offering enriching experiences for aspiring filmmakers.

The festival recognizes outstanding cinematic achievements through its prestigious awards. The Maguey Award champions films promoting LGBTQ+ inclusivity and social progress, while the “Rigo Mora Award” program highlights exceptional short films. Locally produced short films will compete in the “El mar en Corto” contest, this year focusing on the themes of “culture of peace” and “social responsibility.”

The coveted Golden Iguana, the festival’s highest honor, will be presented to a legendary figure who has made significant contributions to global cinema. This iconic award, featuring a symbol synonymous with Puerto Vallarta, underscores the festival’s enduring legacy.
