Biophilia is a concept based on respect and love for life and living beings.

Our essence is hidden in the earth, inside everything converges, an infinite cycle that reveals being: sprouting, intertwining, flourishing, and later, being a seed that fell to germinate again. We celebrate the connection of man with the earth, and how from this link, we are able to perceive and build our surroundings, recognize ourselves in the gaze of the other, or ignore a little about our being.

The festival activities will take place in the month of November, we will carry out face-to-face and online activities creating links in three states of Mexico: Mexico City, the State of Mexico and Oaxaca.

Complementario a las exhibiciones y programaciones se impartirán talleres y habrá charlas y master class con especialistas en la cinematografía, estas actividades se realizarán de manera online y presencial (si las condiciones de pandemia lo permite), y están planeadas para los asistentes y el público interesado, buscando impulsar a nuevos autores. Así como actividades especiales para los autores de los cortometrajes ganadores de cada categoría y las menciones honoríficas.

1. A Jury will choose a winning work in each category and, if deemed necessary, honorable mentions. Which will be awarded a special recognition.

2. The works of the Official Selection of all categories will be screened in at least one space in Mexico City, the State of Mexico and Oaxaca, and scheduled via streaming.

3. The authors of the winning works in each category and with honorable mentions, will be able to take an online express workshop that will be taught in spanish, or a streaming masterclass that will be translated into english.
