Gucci/Ambulante Grant

In 2007 Gucci commemorated the opening of the company’s first store in Mexico by developing a unique partnership with Ambulante Gira de Documentales to establish the Gucci/Ambulante Grant to support the production, development and exhibition of top level documentary filmmaking in Mexico.


Founded in 2006 by Pablo Cruz and actors Gael Garcia Bernal and Diego Luna, Ambulante Gira de Documentales is the first traveling film festival in Mexico.
Ambulante is carried out through Documentale Ambulante A.C., a non-profit organization that aims primarily to circulate documentary film projects through festivals in Mexico. Ambulante brings documentary films to places where they are rarely seen, to build an audience that can actively participate in the re-imagining of a diversified media culture and to transform the cinematic landscape in Mexico.

The Gucci/Ambulante Grant provides grants totaling $80,000 to a minimum of two filmmakers each year and is administered by Ambulante. Applicants may include starting and experienced filmmakers, and they must be Mexican citizens.
