Puerto Vallarta dresses up from March 11-22 to host the 19th International Film Festival, an event organized by the University Center of the Coast (CUCosta), supported by the Guadalajara International Film Festival, the University of Guadalajara, Jalisco’s Government and the Ministry of Culture.

During the festival attendees will be able to enjoy films, workshops and talks. Each year the festival invites a host country, this year is Chile. The film scene in Puerto Vallarta increases yearly thanks to this event. Attendees can view over 45 films over 12 days free of charge.

The event is based at CUCosta, but additional activities are held at various cultural and recreational spaces such as: Los Arcos, the Seaside Boardwalk, Cifuentes Auditorium, the School of Gatronomy, Cinemex Galerías Plaza, La Isla Shopping Village, several restaurants, hotels and others.

At the end of the festival an award ceremony is held to deliver the “Golden Iguana” to those characters who have made significant contributions to the world film industry. In this edition Puerto Vallarta International Film Festival will award Jean Paul Belmondo, Blanca Guerra, Diana Bracho, Fiona Clark and Esther García.
