Film Festival – March
Todos Santos Film Festival
Film transports us to unknown territories andchallenges us with eclectic and provocative ideas. Film, with its light, illuminates us. – Sylvia Perel, Founder Director
The Todos Santos Film Fesitival is an annual event. This year the event will take place from March 1 through March 7, 2010.
For the past 6 years, Todos Santos has held an event of growing acclaim, the Todos Santos Film Festival. Last year a documentary was screened highlighting the nearly timeless lifestyle of the rancheros still living in the local mountains. In fact, many of the featured stars joined the premier to a standing ovation. This year should be just as exciting as the Todos Santos Film Festival brings to Todos Santos and La Paz Latin American cinematography of great artistic and educational merit, while celebrating local and national Mexican film culture. This year the festival offers a selection of the best and most recent fiction, documentary and short films from Latin America and Mexico.
The Todos Santos Film SFF promotes youth education through film and supports women in film while avoiding stereotypes and violence as entertainment. It also supports the protection of the environment and the fight against domestic violence. Film transports us to unknown territories and challenges us with eclectic and provocative ideas. Film, with its light, illuminates us.
On behalf of the Committee of the 2010 Todos Santos Film Festival and Elsa de LaPaz Esquivel, director of the Instituto Sudcaliforniano de Cultura, would like to thank and express their gratitude to all those whose made the Seventh Todos Santos Film Festival possible. Without their generous cooperation this event would not have been possible. – Sylvia Perel, Founder Director
