Closing-Night Award Ceremony and Mariachi Dance Party

October 20, 2014 - October 21, 2014

The Margaret Mead Filmmaker Award recipient(s) will be announced at a ceremony during the Closing Night Reception.  Introduced by Sevanne Kassarjian, granddaughter of Margaret Mead, the 2013 Filmmaker Award Jury will be on hand to present the award.


Following the presentation and in honor of the diverse set of Mexican films featured in this year’s festival, the closing night celebrations feature a vibrant blend of old and new with a rousing performance by the electrifying Mariachi Flor de Toloache, the first and only all-female mariachi band founded in New York.
