Adiós Clichés is the theme for this year’s festival and explores what it means to be Mexican in the 21st century and the contrasting reality of Mexico.

New this year is the Hola Niños programme for children with matinee films including Top Cat (Gato Y Su Pandilla) and The Legend Of La Llorona (La Leyenda De La Llorona).
