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.
