Welcome to Jalisco

This is the land where Mexico´s most emblematic features were born: Mariachi, Mexican Rodeo and Tequila. It is also the land of the wixárikas and technology, and is the animation and cinematography capital of Mexico. It is gastronomy rich, from the Torta ahogada to the sophistication of Chef Paco Ruano. It is the land of José Clemente Orozco, of María Izquierdo, Juan Rulfo, Salvador Toscano, of Katy Jurado, Guillermo del Toro, Gael García, Consuelito Velázquez, Issac Hernández, of Patricia Riggen, Vicente Fernández and of Carlos Santana. Jalisco is a landscape of forest, jungle, dessert, snow, beach, urban and rural. It is a colonial city, as well as a cosmopolitan city. It is venue for the best cultural and sporting events in majestic settings. Furthermore, we are the second entity in the Republic of Mexico with the highest film production in the country, and the only one with a Film Support Grant. Jalisco is all your production needs, and more. Film in Jalisco!
