Mexican Platform and RivieraLAB 

Outstanding as an event that encourages national film distribution, as well as national and international film production, the Riviera Maya Film Festival 2015 proudly informs that filmmakers and producers have delivered an exceptional response to the Mexican Platform and RivieraLAB calls, receiving 231 entries from more than 20 countries.

RMFF deeply thanks the filmmakers who have sent their projects. The selection of projects to be presented at the fourth Edition of the Festival, taking place on April 23 to 29,  will be published on March the 6th.

For the Mexican Platform competition 45 national projects were submitted. 12 among those projects will be selected to take part of a contemporary Mexican film exhibit that represent the trends of the national film industry. These films will enter the competition to obtain the two Kukulkán Awards and one Youth Jury Award, altogether endowed with 700 thousand pesos.

RivieraLab, our project creation laboratory has received 182 projects from various countries, entering two sections, RivieraLab/Work in Progress and RivieraLab /Coproduction Forum. Among those, 17 will be chosen. Creators will join the Festival to exhibit their work and to compete for 3 awards endowed altogether with 600 thousand pesos.

Thanks to the plentiful participation obtained, the Riviera Maya Film Festival endorses its commitment to encourage national film distribution as well as national and international filmmaking.
