The event was also attended by representatives of the municipal government of Cancun, Playa del Carmen and Tulum, as well as Mr. José Alberto Alonso Ovando, Minister of Education and Culture of Quintana Roo, on behalf of the governor who gave the opening speech of the festival.
The opening gala also features members of the Young Jury, who will be in charge of granting the prize to the best film among the selection for the Mexcan Platform. These young members were selected thanks to their cinematic approach.
