As every year, DocsMX proposes a very particular programme in regards of themes and formats. For the festival the most important is being able to guarantee that each documental has been carefully selected among an enormous offer, under the eye that searches quality in the film proposal. Therefore, this year´s official selection consists of 89 films, chosen from the 1436 received documentaries in the 2020 call.

All the works could be seen from October 08 to 25 for free and on demand on our online platform www.docs-enlinea.com, except for the ones that are part of the non-competitive sections Mx Doctober and DocsMX 15 years, which will have on-site screening* in the three venues that we will have this year.

Lastly, it only remains to thank the selected ones and to all of those that registered, because without them, our fifteenth edition could not be possible.

* Screenings subject to sanitary authority.
