TODOS SANTOS - The 8th Annual Festival de Cine de Todos Santos

Mar 1-7: The 8th Annual Festival de Cine de Todos Santos

The FCTS brings to Todos Santos and La Paz Latin American cinematography of artistic and educational merit and celebrates local and national Mexican film culture. In its eighth edition, the festival offers a selection of the best and most recent fiction, documentary, and shorts from Latin America. This year we honor Mexican and Cuban Film and its authors with a particular focus on the winners of prestigious recognition in the international film circuit. We also recognize the important preservation of the Mexican and international cultural film heritage. The FCTS promotes cinematographic education through its program, "Youth in Video", which has completed its fifth documentary work. Our festival celebrates "Women & Film", avoids stereotypes and violence as entertainment. It also supports the fight against domestic violence and environmental protection. Films transports us to new territories and expands our consciousness with eclectic and provocative ideas. Film with its light illuminates us!

The Committee of the Eighth Film Festival of Todos Santos 2010 and Elsa de la Paz Esquivel, Director of the Institute of Culture of Southern California, would like to express their gratitude to everyone that has made it possible. The cooperation of the Todos Santos community has made the continuity and growth of our festival possible.
