Pixelatl Animation Festival CEO Jose Iñesta on Roots and Tomorrow

Pixlatl, one of the foremost animation festivals in Latin America, will return to its roots of family animated entertainment, as well as discussing the future of the artform at next year’s edition, according to CEO Jose Iñesta.

The Mexican festival will run Sept. 3-7, 2019 under the banner Pixelatl: Raíces y Mañana. (Roots and Tomorrow)

According to Iñesta, Pixelatl is the kind of event that the burgeoning Mexican animation industry was missing. In Mexico, in total, there are nearly 300 film festivals, but none dedicated entirely to the industry, art, and craft of animation. So, for the past eight years, Iñesta and his team have worked to create links between domestic animators and the international community, and grow the untapped resources available in Mexico.

In addition to making Mexican animation, video games and comics more relevant internationally, it is their goal to developing a creative community in their own country. He describes Pixelatl as “an intimate event where people get to know each other and are willing to share projects, ideas, and try to develop, together, a brighter future.”
