Churumbela Children's Film Festival in its fourth edition will take place from November 27 to December 1, 2020 and will bring cinema to Mexican girls and boys so that they know the process of cinematography in a fun and entertaining way. In this atypical year, Churumbela Fest will bet on carrying out activities and programming of children's screenings in its online version and drive-in theater.

Like each edition, it will be dedicated especially to girls and boys from Foster Homes and Community Centers who due to the situation in the face of COVID-19, their vulnerable condition has increased and is much less favorable. For this reason and for them, the short films and feature films that are selected will also be screened and a Churumbela kit for mini-filmmakers will be delivered to them.

Churumbela Children's Film Festival creates an inclusive and completely free environment. It promotes dialogue, the seventh art and artistic expression as tools for social transformation.
