Tonight, the long-awaited Morelia International Film Festival 2013 kicks off with several simultaneous 3D screenings of Alfonso Cuarón's first film in seven years! Yes, I'm talking about the universally acclaimed space movie Gravity, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney. All tickets for Gravity are already sold out, but today it opens in the rest of Mexico as well.
I'm getting ready to make my very first trip to Morelia and cover for ScreenAnarchy as many films and events as possible. It's going to an insane week, with brand new Mexican cinema, a strong presence of Cannes 2013 films (including a Critics' Week selection), the Mexican premiere of highly anticipated auteur works, and the visit of Cuarón himself, Robert Rodriguez, Danny Trejo, Bruno Dumont and (guest of honor) Alejandro Jodorowsky.
If you're going to Morelia, ScreenAnarchy has ready for you a terrific list that for sure will make the trip worthwhile. You can find ScreenAnarchy's 10 picks for Morelia 2013 in the gallery below!
Blue Is The Warmest Color October 19 (3:45 PM), 24 (11:30 AM) & 26 (6:15 PM)
Morelia usually premieres in Mexico the Palme d’Or winner and this year won’t be different. Based on Julie Maroh’s graphic novel, Abdellatif Kechiche’s Blue Is The Warmest Color is obviously a must-see in Morelia!
The first screening is sold out but you can still book tickets for the other two.
