Essential Festival Directives


The event will take place at the summit of Sierra Madre. Please note that accessing the location may involve hiking or using designated transportation services. Prepare accordingly and be mindful of the terrain and weather conditions.

Safety Precautions:

Your safety is our utmost priority. We will have trained staff and security personnel on-site to ensure a secure environment. Please follow their instructions and be aware of any safety guidelines provided.

Weather Considerations:

The Sierra Madre region can experience varying weather conditions. It is essential to dress appropriately and come prepared for potential changes in temperature, wind, or precipitation. Bringing layers of clothing, hats, and waterproof gear is recommended.


Sierra Madre is home to diverse wildlife. While observing and appreciating the natural fauna is encouraged, it is important to maintain a respectful distance and refrain from feeding or disturbing the animals.

No Plastic Bottles:

Please help us reduce plastic waste by refraining from bringing any plastic bottles to the event. Instead, we encourage you to bring your own reusable water bottles or containers.

Water Station for Tumblers:

We are happy to inform you that we will have a water station available for refilling your own tumblers or reusable water bottles. Stay hydrated throughout the event while reducing single- use plastic consumption.

Designated Smoking and Vaping Area:

If you are a smoker or vaper, we have set up a designated area for you to smoke or vape. We request that you use this area before or after the event, rather than during the event. The designated area will be situated away from the cinema and other gathering areas to make sure that everyone can enjoy the event comfortably. Please make sure to extinguish your smoking or vaping materials properly and dispose of them in the ashtrays or containers provided

Medical Team:

We have a medical team available at the event to ensure everyone's safety and well-being.If you need medical assistance, please inform a staff member who will quickly contact the medical team. Your health and safety are our top priorities, and we are dedicated to providing a secure environment for all attendees.

No Picnic:

Please note that picnicking will not be allowed during the movie screening. We encourage you to enjoy your meals before or after the event at designated areas outside the cinema area.

No Overnight Stay:

The event is scheduled for the movie screening only, and overnight stay on the mountain will not be permitted. We kindly ask that you plan your travel accordingly and make arrangements to leave the venue after the movie concludes.

Photography and Enjoyment:

Capture the memories of this extraordinary experience through photography, but remember to be considerate of fellow attendees. Avoid obstructing views or causing distractions during the movie screening.

Attend at Your Own Risk:

Please be aware that attending the event atop Sierra Madre is at your own risk. The event organizers and associated parties will not be held liable for any injuries, accidents, or losses during the event.

Leave No Trace

As responsible stewards of the environment, we kindly request that you adhere to the principles of "Leave No Trace." Please bring down all your trash, dispose of it properly in designated bins, and avoid any activities that may harm the natural surroundings.
