The Puerto Vallarta International Film Festival, now celebrating its 19th edition, is our destination’s most important film festival and will feature the presence of Chile as the guest of honor.

From March 11th to 22nd, 2019, all those film lovers will be able to enjoy a special selection of more than 50 national and international films, based at the Centro Universitario de la Costa (CUCosta) of the Universidad de Guadalajara (UdeG), the institution that organizes the festival.

As every year, the “La Iguana de Oro” medal will be presented to outstanding personalities who have made significant contributions to world cinema and, in addition, there will be parallel activities such as the “Cátedra Huston de Cine y Literatura” (Huston’s Lecture in Film and Literature), which will be attended by actress Diana Bracho (Mexico); Fiona Clark, director of the Cork Film Festival (Ireland); Esther García, production director of El Deseo (production house of Pedro Almodóvar) and Kevin Scott (Canada), director of the special effects of the film The Shape of Water.

This edition will be attended by artistic talent such as Blanca Guerra, honored at the Guadalajara International Film Festival; the first actress Ofelia Medina; Sebastián del Amo, director of “El Complot Mongol,” film of the inaugural FICPV gala and documentary directors such as Ricky López Bruni, Jorge Bidault, José Leos Bruni, María Antonieta de la Fuente Díaz, Rubén Bañuelos and Iván López.

“Without doubt, Vallarta Lifestyles is the best positioned Magazine in the region. Its solid presence keeps a strong and always fresh vision about the destination, as well as activities. Besides, I consider it a great intellectual contribution for the well written articles that are in each issue”.

“Vallarta Lifestyles has readers from Punta de Mita to Mismaloya and beyond, so announcing my business, means the positioning and recognition of my agency throughout the region. The contents of the magazine are very interesting, because they provide relevant information about activities in the destination. I am pleased to see it at hotels, restaurants and galleries, but what excites me the most is to see people with their issue in hand. That is really relevant for us”.

“One of the biggest benefits of advertising our business in Vallarta Lifestyles is the presence of our brand aimed to the audience we are looking for. It is a reliable and professional magazine that has helped us with the marketing of our restaurant several times, through well done photography or articles. We feel that we understand each other”.
