For the eighth consecutive year in Mexico, a list of the best national short films in the categories of fiction, animation, and documentary is made. This TOP is an initiative of the International Short Film Festival of Mexico/Shorts Mexico.

The festival is the only one of its kind in Mexico. Some of the objectives of Shorts Mexico/FICMEX are:

To exhibit, disseminate and promote national and international short films by new and established directors.

Decentralize the exhibition of short films in Mexico. This part is essential because the short films are shown on a national and international tour, in the case of foreign countries only national productions are shown so that the public in other countries can see Mexican productions.

Promote the production of short films. Promote interaction between the public and the producers of short films.

Reach and create new audiences. Due to the eagerness of the festival, new showcases are being sought, such as different exhibition forums, such as public transportation (Metro and Metrobus), and the outdoor screen of the National Auditorium, in addition to proposing programming to different public and pay television channels.

Promote training and cinematographic creation through conferences, workshops, seminars (covering all areas of filmmaking), contests, and competitions.

This chart takes into account its presence in national and international festivals, awards, comments from film critics and journalists, as well as people involved in the industry.
