MORBIDO FILM FEST 2020 
CALL FOR ENTRIES
A DIFFERENT REALITY - A DIFFERENT SKIN

An uncertain future makes it crystal clear that the flexibility to adapt is key for survival. In those terms, Morbido 2020 will have a hybrid identity. The festival will take place on the pay tv channel Morbido TV, online, a drive-in and hopefully in theaters, fully respecting the sanitary guidelines of Mexico City.

Because of the pandemic and the present sanitary restrictions we will not be able to host international nor national guests but we underline that all our screenings will be accompanied by Q/A Sessions with the filmmakers in our selection. These sessions will be broadcast on Morbido TV and its app during the festival.

SHORT FILM SELECTION / Pay TV + Online
31st Oct through 06 Nov

FEATURE FILM SELECTION / Drive In + Cinemas
31st Oct through 06 Nov


Important:
Due to the present conditions we remain alert to the development of the pandemic or any other extraordinary situation. In case festival dates or festival venues need to be modified we will duly inform all participants.
