3rd Independent Film and Video Festival

Retransmisión travels for the third time to 8 cities in Mexico, bringing film shows, experimental video installations, audiovisual interventions and its filmmakers. Generating new routes, spaces and audiences eager to see the best of the international independent film scene.

For this reason, it extends a call to filmmakers, videographers and creative people in general to participate in the third edition, focused on international independent animation, as well as on the national and international projection of Mexican cinema.

The selected films do not participate for any prize or economic remuneration, but they are integrated into a permanently active circuit nationwide, within which they will be able to exhibit to large and new audiences who will recognize their work and will be able to host Q&A sessions, as well as offering courses or visits as special guests.

Been selected means being part of a large community supporting the exhibition and production which continually grows nationally and internationally

The selected ones will be exhibited by the 8 cities that make up the Retransmission circuit through the months of August to November. And they will receive a certificate of participation. As well as the opportunity to sell copies of their films or to present themselves as special guests at functions.

Mexican Films:
The 20 selected short films will be exhibited by the 8 cities that make up the Retransmission circuit through the months of August to November, as well at the 30° Girona International Film Festival from September 25 to 29. With the opportunity to be invited to appear at national and international exhibitions. Also receiving a double certificate of participation.

The official selection will be chosen by the curatorship of members of the collective nationwide.

The film festival is non-profit and the recovery costs will be clear. In case of generating any cost for the attendees, the filmmakers will be notified and the pertinent agreements will be made.
