Went to the National Film Centre in the south of Mexico City today. Extraordinary building. The old part is fairly conventional but an extension, linked by an impressive new roof, brings it into the 21st century - and to life. People don't just go there to see films. There are cafes, shops and a soon-to-be opened exhibition centre. And together with outdoor screenings it seems to be a cool place to hang out. A bit like a university campus. We'll be doing some events here during the year.
