Cancun and the Riviera Maya are known for beautiful white-sand beaches, turquoise Caribbean Waters, and All Inclusive hotels. Over the years, these destinations have also established themselves as great places to host events. Excellent tourism infrastructure, a wide availability of domestic and international flights from all over the world, and incredible natural scenery make Cancun and the Riviera Maya the perfect setting for the Riviera Maya Film Festival 2015, which will be held from April 23-29.
Both Playa del Carmen and Puerto Morelos will host outdoor film screenings for the fourth edition of the Riviera Maya Film Festival. The available film screenings that you can enjoy include the Mexican Platform, undoubtedly one of the most interesting at the event; Planetarium, which focuses on world affairs; Wide Audience, with films aimed at mass audiences; Authorial Panorama, which features alternative storytelling and production methods; and RivieraLAB Presents, with the latest projects.
There will also be galas in the cities of Cancun and Tulum, which in past years have featured appearances by Hollywood stars, such as Maggie Gyllenhaal (The Dark Night, Mona Lisa Smile) and Peter Sargaard (Blue Jasmine, The Man in the Iron Mask) and Mexican artists and directors, such as José María Torre, Ana Layevska, Kuno Becker and Ludwika Paleta, creating closer ties between movie goers and film industry figures.
