When you’re in tropical locations, you often become used to things running on “island time.” And, by all accounts, the 2nd Riviera Maya Film Festival had its fundamental organizational flaws. But, that said, who can argue with the inherent beauty of the locations – Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Isla Holbox, and other gorgeous beachside jewels of the Mexican Caribbean, each worthy of a festival that should take advantage of the offerings and focus as much on the destination as the cinematic journey on offering.
The festival played host to Spring Breakers star Ashley Benson as well as 80s star Christian Slater and Stephen Dorff, who plays the lead in Zaytoun, a film received favorably at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2012.
