Thanks to all who entered the 1999 Festival! The second Ajijic Festival
Internacional de Cine will be held November 8-12, 2000. Film and video
entries are due by July 15, 2000.
James E. Lloyd, President of the Festival's Board of Directors, hopes to
double our first year's submissions to at least 200 entries. The emphasis
of this festival, as it was with our inaugural effort last year, will be the
celebration, discovery and recognition of talent from around the world. In
addition, we will expand opportunities for filmmakers to meet with
distributors and studio production executives from North America, Europe,
Asia and South America.
Festival 1999 award winners included Morita Noriko of Tokyo Japan for
Animation; Nurit Kedar, from Israel for Documentary; Cindy Paul and Lonny
Riddle from Chapala Jalisco Mexico for Screenplay; Ryan Webb and Kris Moran
from Boston Massachusetts for Short Subject; Nora Jacobson from Norwich
Vermont for Independent Feature Film; and David Mamet for The Winslow Boy,
best studio feature.
