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 2021 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.
