To accommodate evolving public health recommendations regarding COVID-19, we are adopting a hybrid virtual-and-in-person festival model for 2021. VIRTUAL, IN-PERSON, and HYBRID (virtual AND in-person) Festival Passes are available here.

⚠️ Please note: For the sake of public safety, NWFF will require both face-coverings and proof of vaccination from in-person audiences. We reserve the option to shift the festival to virtual-only on short notice.

Set on the streets of Mexico City, Occupying the Megalopolis features a broad cast of visual artists, political protesters, immigrant squatters, and charming misfits who band together against commercial interests and the state to defend their ancestral rights to public space. This richly tapestried documentary is presented primarily in Spanish and English.
