Talents Guadalajara presents its eleventh edition under the theme “Filmocracy”; inspired in the search of the rules that define and guide our film industry. Each year, Talents Guadalajara and Premio Maguey join forces in both programs in pursuit of liberty and diversity with the 50 young filmmakers selected from 602 applications and 24 different countries. Each one of them outstands by innovation, boldness, and creativity; eager to question and defy their craft, in order to master it and be ready to question it again.
This year we’ve strengthened this collaboration, creating a synergy of consultancies and one-on-one meetings, with filmmakers working with LGBTQ and gender equality content in order to empower their project, ideas, and creative core.
Talents Circle: Non-binary Screens
Tuesday, March 12th 10:00-11:15 hrs
Sala 4 Conjunto Santander de Artes Escénicas
The representation of women and men in popular culture, just like that of the LGBTQ community, has been adorned by a set of rules (sometimes distorted) about genre and sexuality. How are we affected by these binary rules? What can we do to improve from all perspectives?
What are the Talents Circles?
Talents Circles are relaxed dialogues between the Talents aimed to build and establish questions and answers about the current conditions regarding the film industry. In these circles we intend to create a safe space to share and speak about our concerns and conceive a new point of view and form of cinema, responding to the needs and challenges of today.
