The REEL DOCS Selection Committee
is now accepting submissions!



We have decided to postpone our 2021 season until we can safely
show films in person. Therefore we anticipate our next series

in Spring 2022.  Filmmakers, please submit your films now to
our Selection Committee!


If you would like to submit a film, please review our List of Requirements before submitting your film:

  • We only accept feature-length documentary films.  REEL DOCS specializes in documentary films with strong personal narratives and/or that are about the arts. If your film is not one or both of those things, please do not submit it.
  • Submissions must include a brief synopsis of your film and bio about the filmmaker.
  • Filmmaker or someone on production team must be prepared to travel to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico
    at your expense.  We do NOT provide airfare but do provide housing.


If you meet all these requirements, email your snumission with screener link with password to for our Selection Committee to review.




IMPORTANT:  If selected, the filmmaker or a selected representative

from the production team must be prepared to travel to San Miguel de Allende during the months of
January, February or March, at your expense, for the public screenings of your film and participate in local Q&A sessions. 
Reel Docs will provide housing and discounted airport transportation services.


REEL DOCS, a documentary series, showcases international documentary filmmakers in an intimate 82-seat theatre that is part one of the largest bilingual libraries in Mexico.


REEL DOCS is a non-profit endeavor benefiting programming for local children at the Biblioteca Publica. Therefore, we will provide local housing for filmmakers, but filmmakers are asked to pay for their own transportation to San Miguel. Selected films for upcoming sessions will be grouped around common themes. Screening dates will be based on filmmakers travel plans and availability prior to each film series.


San Miguel is famous for our large expatriate and tourist populations, which support the many cultural activities the city has to offer.
