As many as 43 Mexican filmmakers accepted FIFF's invitation to share the homegrown films that they feel have shaped the history of Mexican cinema. Among their choices – more than 80 films in all – is an impressive number of rare films and little-known directors like Roberto Gavaldón (four films), Felipe Cazals and Luis Alcoriza (three films each). If he is able to take some time out from post-production on his new film, Guillermo del Toro has agreed to talk about these film auteurs, live from Hollywood!
