Day of the death Film Festival 2019

Since 2018, we celebrate the Day of the Dead Film Festival in Copenhagen, Denmark. This is a tradition we have carried out in Rossscammm Films & Marketing to let the world know more about the Mexican Day of the Dead tradition that comes from centuries back in history.

During these days the Mexican cemeteries are decorated with flowers and a lot of colors just to celebrate people that are no longer with us in this world. This year we will celebrate again this day to share this tradition with you where you will be able to see Mexican films and enjoy some cultural workshops. 

Learn about México at this festival.

Join us!
