After eleven years, Elena Fortes will leave her role as Director of Ambulante in order to become part of the Board of Directors, and embark on a new project. The organization she founded, together with Gael García Bernal, Diego Luna and Pablo Cruz, will be headed by Paulina Suárez Hesketh, who has a wide trajectory as a curator, programmer, as well as a thorough knowledge of film.
The festival is non-competitive. The programming committee, whose final decision is not subject to appeal, will review the selection. We will only accept films with a running time of at least 50 minutes, completed between 2016 and 2017. There is no restriction regarding the subject matter. Innovation and creativity in the form and content will be taken into consideration during the selection process. We will not accept institutional or promotional films, nor news report or films in a television format.
