The Viva Mexico Film Festival (VMFF) aims to bring the best of modern day Mexican cinema to Australian audiences each year. Our principal goals are to:
• promote the work of Mexico's most outstanding film-makers
• provide the Australian audience with a deeper insight into, and appreciation of traditional and contemporary Mexican culture through film
• provide the Mexican community in Australia a link to home by bringing a selection of some of Mexico's best films
• raise awareness and knowledge about Mexico in general, including the diversity of its people, culture, landscapes and to showcase Mexico as an outstanding tourist destination.
The Viva Mexico Film Festival Australia was originally created by Jose Briones and Sarah Connor together with a team of supporters such as Branding Gears, Mexico Tourism Board and volunteers who share a passion for Mexico, its people and its culture. Despite great effort, the VMFF came to life in 2015.
This year our vision is clear and the VMFF is back stronger than ever.
