The second edition of the Baja International Film Festival (BIFF), celebrated in Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, Mexico, is taking shape. Charlie Sheen is going south the border as festival guest, while the animated 3D movie Foosball (aka Metegol) is confirmed for opening night.
And now, Baja Film Festival has ready its official lineup, with the Canadian The Dirties as definitive highlight (you can read Ben Umstead's The Dirties review and interview). I leave you with the festival's official statement and lineup.
