Monterrey International Film Festival

Monterrey International Film Festival.

About

In 2005, the festival became the Monterrey International Film Festival, supported by important institutions and sponsors like the Nuevo León Council for Culture and the Arts, the MMCinemas theater chain, the City of Monterrey Cultural Affairs Office, the Nuevo León Filmmakers Association, the National Council for the Arts, the Autonomous University of Nuevo León, TVNL State Television, and Mundo DeaDeveras theme park. The generosity of these and other sponsors transformed the festival into an annual event of cultural importance for México and Monterrey.

Today the Monterrey International Film Festival is among the top five film festivals in Mexico and certainly the most important in the northern part of the country. 

Mission. To bring together for Monterrey’s audience a panorama of international film which explores the thematic and formal tendencies of the new auteur cinema, enriching the city’s cinematic offer and stimulating the regional production of quality films.

Motto: One planet, millions of stories.
