The Mexican Film Festival Cinemaztlán comes back to the Netherlands with a

will take place in several locations with a rich and diverse program.

This Friday the 9th of October the Mexican filmfestival Cinemaztlan
presents ‘mouthcaps in Action’! Look beyond the Mexican flu!
Do you like to act, improvise, and amaze people?
Then join us on Friday the 9th of October!

What?           A playful stunt will take place at precisely 13.00 o clock.
A large group of people will gather at the Leidseplein. One by one they
will be putting on mouthcaps and interact with each other: A dance, a
handshake, a wave, a kiss…
After a little while one person will take the megaphone and present
information about Cinemaztlán, the sparkling Mexican filmfestival.

Where?  Leidseplein Amsterdam

When?   We gather on Friday the 9th of October at 12:00 ‘o’ clock at the
entrance of Café De Balie.

Mexican film.

Head of communication: Valentine Berning.
Cinemaztlán will provide special mouthcaps for you.

The festival is more than “an event”: the power of art also offers
possibilities to reflect on existent visions and convictions. Cinemaztlán
looks forward to let the power or images stimulate and inspire the
Netherlands and cause an active curiosity within it.
