Ambulante Global arose from the experience in planning and producing the Ambulante Film Festival in Mexico, and it represents the first official attempt to establish in the long term Ambulante’s presence outside the country. Over the years, Ambulante has accumulated a valuable experience in producing film festivals in a variety of geographic and social contexts.
Parque de los Deseos, Medellín, Colombia
In an effort to reach new audiences, Ambulante has managed to involve in the festival’s organization a large variety of partners and collaborators (movie complexes, film industry organizations, institutions, grassroots organizations and NGOs, universities, etc.). The festival has managed to establish an impeccable and prestigious trajectory, backed by the testimonies of guests from past editions, by multiple invitations to participate in film festivals in other parts of the world and by different acknowledgements like the 2011 Human Rights WOLA Award for the promotion of documentaries as a change tool. During the Ambulante Global edition, we seek to expand its network of collaborators, to work with different local partners and to create a suitable context for the reception of documentary films, as well as to boost the impact and visibility of this important genre.
