As part of the Guanajuato International Film Festival: GIFF 2017, college students from all over the Mexican Republic compete during a Rally to make a short film in 48 hours.

The IX University Rally kicked off in the middle of the rain and a traffic jam in the city of Guanajuato.

The Rally seeks to promote the development of new talent, and to foster the enthusiasm of young filmmakers for creating innovative projects within the industry.

The six finalists were chosen from 22 states in the country; the finalists embark on the adventure of making a short film within a 48-hour period.

GIFF Director Sarah Hoch, accompanied by state officials, jury and a group of professional musicians, thanked the public’s response and waved the checkered flag to announce the Rally start.
