Monterrey International Film Festival

In 1999, after having invited UFVA ?s NEXTFRAME festival twice to Monterrey, Voladero Cultural Center decided to organize the first film festival in the city. The Voladero International Film and Video Festival 2000 was born and was directed by José Galindo for three editions and by Juan Manuel González since 2003.

In 2005, the festival became the Monterrey International Film Festival, supported by important institutions and sponsors like the Nuevo León Council for Culture and the Arts, the MMCinemas theater chain, the City of Monterrey Cultural Affairs Office, the Nuevo León Filmmakers Association, the National Council for the Arts, the Autonomous University of Nuevo León, TVNL State Television, and Mundo DeaDeveras theme park. The generosity of these and other sponsors transformed the festival into an annual event of cultural importance for México and Monterrey.
