With an eye toward the centennial of its independence, Mexico will be the special guest at the 13th edition of the “Filmar en America Latina” film festival in Geneva, where for more than three weeks the public will be able to view more than 100 films produced in Latin America in 2010 and 2011.
From Oct. 31 to Nov. 22, the public will be able to enjoy a selection of films and documentaries from across Latin America, but particularly from Mexico, which – as this year’s honored guest – is contributing 24 works.
Mexican actor Gabino Rodriguez, who had roles in eight Mexican films during 2010-2011, will be the special invited guest at the festival this year, and all his latest works will be screened including “Asalto al cine” by Iria Gomez, “Verano de Goliat” de Nicolas Pereda and “Abel” by Diego Luna.Those three Mexican films will compete for the best picture award at the festival, along with works from Peru, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile and Colombia.

“Abel,” the first work directed by Diego Luna, will kick off the festival on Oct. 31.
