On Thursday, visitors from the Banff Mountain Film Festival come to Mexico City for their annual Radical Reels Tour at the Cineteca Nacional in Coyoacán. The Radical Reels Tour is a collection of the most intense, adrenaline-rush-inducing footage of extreme sports collected this year at the Banff Mountain Festival in Banff, Alberta.
Also on Thursday, the International Film Series with a Gender Perspective MICGénero will open with a screening of the Argentine film La Patota (Paulina) at Teatro Fru Fru in the Historic Center. The series will last until Oct. 30.
Later Thursday night, Barba Azul Cabaret in the Obrera neighborhood will host a "ficheros" night. A spin on the classic "ficheras," female dance partners-for-hire, ficheros are male partners-for-hire. Live salsa bands La Nueva Nostalgia and Los Del Son will keep you dancing with your highly skilled partner.
Later on Friday night, iconic Mexico City electronic music collective NAAFI will bring together cutting-edge electronic dance music from all over the hemisphere, hosting Puerto Rican rap trio Fuete Billete, New York DJ TYGAPAW and Buenos Aires DJ Tahyana. Also performing will be Chilean-born Mexico City rapper Jamez Manuel and NAAFI DJ O.M.A.A.R. The event will take place at Foro Normandie in the Historic Center and costs 200 pesos at the door.
