Riviera Maya Film Festival 2015!

The Riviera Maya Film festival has beeen a big success year after year! Since its first edition in 2012 it has been bringing quality films to the Riviera Maya.

From its beginnings, this festival has focused on the promotion of national and international film projects.

In the moment we step into the world of films an exciting universe is open. Most people have limited contact with the film industry and only sporadictly go to cinemas to see movies that are heavily advertised or recommended, we go in the company of our friends. In many cases, prepared to have some popcorn or hot-dogs.

That is only the gateway to the fascinating world of cinema. When you buy a ticket. The film world is both industry and art. At the Riviera Maya Film Festival you will get a chance to see a great selection of independent films that will definetly expand your knowledge in this fine art.

Here is the selection for this 2015 festival
