The Festival Sayulita 2014

By Haydé Escalante

Festival Sayulita 2014 is a perfect option if you enjoy great movies, tequila, awesome food and SURFING! The festival will be held from January 16-19th on the beautiful coast of Riviera Nayarit. Original and independent films will be shown in different venues, with on-the-beach and private screenings. Each film has been carefully chosen for the location and there will also be tequila tastings and live music at night.
The event will highlight the different aspects of the town, such as aquatic sports – (mainly surfing) Mexican cuisine, local crafts and yoga classes. These activities emphasize Sayulita’s bohemian atmosphere, which has captured national and international interest.
Sayulita’s Casa de la Cultura will be the main venue for the event and will present a special exhibit of art and photos of local culture. Private screenings of different genre films will also be held; such as action, sports, documentaries, short films, animation, and alternative films. Some films already scheduled -and which you can’t miss – are “Evergreen”, “Good Night”, “Circo” and “Thule”.
This first annual event will offer tequila tasting. It will be presented and hosted by some of the finest distilleries in the region, and they will share their wisdom with all attendees. Some of the tequila exhibitors and tasting sessions will be paired up with the best restaurants in town, creating an extraordinary experience for all of us who enjoy traditional gastronomy. Some of the tequila brands to be featured in the festival are: Partida Tequila, El Capricho, Tres Generaciones, El Secreto, and Casa Sauza Tequila.
