London MexfestLondon MexFest casts aside sombreros, moustaches and ponchos and instead welcomes both Mexican and British creatives to partake in a four-day event that celebrates contemporary Mexican culture, without a stereotype in sight. Featuring some of the country's up-and-coming and established artists, the festival showcases cinema, architecture, exhibition, art, music, discussions and more. Venues such as the BFI, The V&A, and the Royal Academy of Arts take part but the majority of events are hosted by Rich Mix. Programme highlights include films by the renowned Diego Luna, Michael Franco, Pedro Gonzalez Rubio and Marianna Chenillo; a series of Architecture talks with Victor Legorreta, Michel Rojkind and Miquel Adria at the Royal Academy of Arts; and an installation from visual artist Pablo Delgado. There will also be Mexican treats supplied by Wahaca and free outdoor film screenings at Canary Wharf.
