Learn about Los Cabos+
Actualizado: 1 de oct de 2019
Los Cabos+, our educational and training platform, focuses on the discovery and development of young talent in Baja California Sur and the rest of Mexico, interested in the film industry.
This year, the activities concerning community of Los Cabos include the creation of cultural circuits:
“Cine para todos” (Cinema for all) program. We will resume our free screenings project in public spaces. Together with the Instituto Sudcaliforniano de Cultura (the Cultural Institute of Baja California Sur) we will showcase in La Paz two open-air screenings on the 1st and 2nd of November. Furthermore, during the Festival –together with the Municipality of Los Cabos– we will once again schedule film screenings at the Plaza Mijares in San José del Cabo on the 16th and 17th of November.
Series of workshops “La importancia de un Festival de Cine” (The importance of a Film Festival). Throughout the months of August, September and October we will be giving talks aimed at workers in the tourism industry, the media, and students.
“Cine en la Playa” (Cinema at the beach). For the second year running and in partnership with Hotel Casa Dorada Resort & Spa, in Cabo San Lucas, there will be two film screenings on the hotel’s emblematic El Médano beach. These showings aimed at the community of Los Cabos, will be completely free of charge and will take place on the 14th and 15th of November.
3er Concurso de Crítica Cinematográfica (3rd Film Critic Contest). In this initiative designed to foster the professionalization and training of new talents, young people over the age of eighteen will be able to take part in this contest. It consists in writing a film review about a Mexican feature film, following a thematic axis previously chosen by the Jury and the Festival’s Committee. The winners will be invited to travel to Los Cabos during the Festival, where they will receive professional advice and participate in workshops imparted by a select group of Mexican film critics. The call for entry will open in September.
Voluntarios 2019 (2019 Volunteers). A key element of our Festival are the volunteers who come together every year, offering their great talent and enthusiasm, while providing assistance to the Festival in its different areas. The call for entry to become a volunteer is announced at the different schools in San José del Cabo, La Paz and Cabo San Lucas. The volunteer registration for our 8th edition will be available in September.
