MEET THE DIRECTORS
This festival favorite is an annual staple to the festival since the very start. In La Choperia, a cool local bar, this is a special night where a handful of directors will screen their short film and discuss with the audience the experience of making their film.
A "do not miss" on the festival agenda. Shown immediately after the awards presentation this is a selection of shorts from the festival's official selection that will have the audience talking about them until Oaxaca FilmFest 4 arrives!
