2011 Guest Country: Mexico

ISFF is pleased to announce that Mexico will be this year’s Guest Country for the 4th Annual Imagine Science Film Festival.

In 2010 Mexico made many contributions to science, and hosted the 2010 United Nations Climate. This year, in partnership with Nature NY, the Mexican Consulate of NYC and New Scientist, ISFF will host a special evening of Mexican short films called “Ciencias Cinematograficas” during the festival on October 18th at indiescreen. The event will be presented by Mexican-native and editor of Nature New York, Juan Carlos Lopz. There will be a reception at Cantina Royale after the screening that will feature curated video installations and a DJ.

Throughout the year, ISFF will continue to highlight the innovations and stories about science and technology in Mexico, in an effort to inspire dialogues about science and art, as well as promote cultural understanding through the exchange of ideas in film.

It is also a municipality located about 85 km (53 mi) south of Mexico City. Cuernavaca is a scientific pole in Central America. It also plays host to a number of scientific research institutes, industrial parks, an extension of the National University in Mexico City and seventeen other universities, and a number of retired diplomats, business executives and government officials.
