Stuff Mx Film Festival 2016.
Stuff MX was born in 2016 with the intention of being a real option to see national and international independent cinema that is far from the national screenings of other festivals dedicated only to national short films or horror festivals that leave out all other film genres.
Our first edition was held in October 2016, from that moment Stuff Mx began its journey as a platform that exhibited international short films of various nationalities that have only come to Mexico thanks to the festival.
