30 YEARS OF FICG

One hundred and ten thousand people attended the diverse offering of activities held during the 30th annual Guadalajara International Film Festival. The event, which highlights the University of Guadalajara’s interest in promoting and recognizing quality films, ended this week.

The growth of the educational activities, Talents and Doculab, was evident this year, as well as the exhibition of six inclusive films.
