About Festival Sayulita
During the last few days of January, the entire coastal town of Sayulita will offer a lively festival atmosphere and a huge selection of activities at venues all over town. Those attending may expect to see amazing films, an abundance of live musical entertainment, an incredible surf competition and many chances to try the best Mexican food and spirits. The festival is a nonprofit event, and all proceeds will be used to build a cultural center within the community.
Though Festival Sayulita is only in its third year, it has already become a top destination for international filmmakers to introduce their work. Over 60 films were shown at the 2015 festival, and many more are expected in 2016. All kinds of films will be featured, and there will definitely be something for everyone to enjoy. Types of films include documentaries, stop motion, animation, short features, action sports, comedy and alternative. Watch for signs at locations throughout the town where viewings will be held, and you can also expect to see several viewings right on the beautiful beaches. If you don’t want to watch along with the crowds, then arrangements may be made for a private viewing for your party.
