Report on Morelia International Film Festival, 17–26 October 2014
This article reports on the twelfth edition of the Morelia International Film Festival, which took place from 17 to 26 October 2014. It begins by recounting the debates held at the Encuentro de Realizadores Mexicanos, an industry forum that gave voice to directors, archivists and critics from Mexico and beyond and focused on such questions as the divide between art movies and commercial cinema. The report goes on to analyse the Mexican fiction features shown at the festival, all national premieres. It argues that there were three main themes: LGBT issues, ageing and the reaction against the slow or observational cinema that was previously dominant at this and other festivals.
