The Pixelatl Festival has become the main source for Latin American artists to connect with the global industries focused on Animation, Comics and Videogames.
For five days it brings together executives, professionals, students and amateurs from all areas of the audiovisual work, in order to: * Encourage the exchange of knowledge and experiences between international and local artists and producers. * Promote the Latin American creative projects * And build an international collaboration network
But first and foremost, El Festival is a space that helps encourage a spirit of community, while allowing producers to interface with the national market and international artists and investors as well.
The festival programs includes different types of activities, which we can group according to their purpose or the spaces where they take place.
Like any animation festival, we have several short film programs and a selection of outstanding animated feature films. Sometimes, we also include non-conventional animation productions in the program, such as mappings, VR, augmented reality or 360° projections.
The Festival has an extensive program of master classes, workshops and discussion panels, for both professionals and beginners.
In 2021, when we celebrated an online edition, we also added "La Tarima", an open virtual space so that members of our community could share projects, knowledge and experiences, and in the 2022 edition we launched “Micrófono Abierto” (Open Microphone), a call for a similar space that will be located in La Feria..
The festival also features an artist's alley for emerging authors, a video game showroom, and an expo. La Ferial also includes stop motion puppets or art exhibitions.
As part of La Feria, we also program activities such as live illustration exhibitions, collective comics activities, real-time animation, as well as samples of work in progress.
In addition, the festival integrates a creative business market, with B2B meetings and other networking activities with international creators and executives.
In addition to all the activities mentioned, we must add, we still have to add mentoring, pitch sessions, recruitment and portfolio reviews, our traditional “Café con..” (coffee with), as well as the industry parties (both those that are part of the program in addition to the “after parties”).
The experience of the Pixelatl festival goes far beyond its program of activities: it is above all the opportunity to join the creative audiovisual community of Latin America, and build links with the international industry.
