Just because events like Venice, TIFF and NYFF are over, that doesn’t mean fall film festival season is slowing down. Quite the contrary, as the renowned Morelia International Film Festival is currently in full swing in Mexico.
Founded in 2003, the festival was designed to put a greater spotlight on Mexican cinema, but it has since grown into an international event, hosting directors as diverse as Alfonso Cuarón and Alejandro González Iñárritu to Todd Haynes, Michel Gondry, Alejandro Jodorowsky and the late Abbas Kiarostami. The festival runs through October 30, and IndieWire has partnered with Festival Scope to give readers the chance to attend from the comfort of their own homes.
Now through Thursday, October 27, IndieWire readers have an exclusive opportunity to register for a chance to win an online festival pass to screen 20 features and documentaries from the Morelia Film Festival on the Festival Scope website. Click here for the registration form — all you need to enter is your first and last name, country and a valid email address — and make sure to enter by October 27 for a chance to win. Morelia and Festival Scope will be giving 10 readers a festival pass, and since there’s only 400 tickets being allotted to the public this year, this is an exclusive opportunity to get ahead of the pack.
Films have already begun streaming on Festival Scope (they become available to stream the day after their premiere at the festival) and public tickets can be purchased. You must use the registration form here to be able to enter to win a free pass. Winners will be notified on October 28. All available features and docs to stream will be live by October 29, and winners will have through November 4 to watch as many as they’d like. The films are listed below, including their premiere date on Festival Scope:
